About Giulliana Merello
Throughout her career, Giulliana has overcome the trials and tribulations that would halt most individuals. Not only as a drummer, but as a person reaching for success. The fact that she never quit is illustrative of her strong character. Giuilliana had early success in her native Argentina but would quickly realize that those accomplishments would not be enough to advance her career in the United States. Starting a career in music is difficult in and of itself but moving your career to New York City without speaking English creates even more difficulties. Despite this, she was able to overcome those obstacles and make her dreams come true. With Giulliana, it is apparent that hard work, never giving up, and always finding a way, helped her achieve her goals; to play the drums at the highest level. However, becoming a touring drummer wasn’t all that Giulliana set out to acheive. She currently has her own funk project of all women musicians and is proving the doubters wrong. For women in the music industry prejudice is widespread, but this did not stop Giulliana in succeeding and coming out on top. What I learned from Giulliana is that no matter what challenges you face as a female in the music industry, you can always find a way to make your dreams come true. Today, Giulliana is planning to tour North America with Karol G starting in September of 2022, but I got to witness Guilliana perform in Barranquilla, Colombia a few months back, and it was a great performance. The women in Karol’s band put on a fantastic show in a performance that crosses the boundaries of reggaeton music. Giulliana’s drumming is a must-see for anyone who wants to experience how powerfully a woman can play the drums.
