Born in Italy in 1974, Stefano Lentini studied Anthropology and Ethnomusicology at the University of Rome. His first instrument was the guitar, built by his grandfather with the doors of an antique wardrobe. Ever since he was young he dedicated himself to the composition. A multi-instrumentalist, Lentini is known for his use of non-conventional tunes on guitar, but also plays electric bass, piano, renaissance lute, flutes, drums and several other instruments, often playing all of these on his soundtracks through the use of multi-track recording.

He is considered part of the cross-chamber music, but his influences are very broad. Lentini’ music often has spiritual themes, and many songs draw inspiration from real stories.
He scored films from Italy, France, US, UK, Australia, Brazil, Ukraine, Hong Kong. He is especially interested in non-conventional scoring. He has just provided it with his Stabat Mater, as seen in Wong Kar Wai’s “The Grandmaster”, two Academy Awards nominee.
