Chisari, the stage name of Maurizio Chisari, is a Sicilian singer-songwriter born in 1983 from Catania.

He approaches music very early, as a child, but to take over in the early years of his life is dance (his parents were taught dance) and today he carries out his profession as an athletic trainer in parallel with the work of author and songwriter. specialized for professional dancers in Sydney Australia.

He attended the State Institute of Art in Catania where he graduated in pictorial decoration, Corso Michelangelo, training in the field of figurative art will still have an influence on many of his artistic and working choices in general.

The need to write songs arose when Maurizio was eighteen. He therefore decides to participate in various competitions and prizes for which he is also finalist (Radar 2009, AlscoltAutori 2010, Fabrizio De Andre ‘Award 2010, Sanremo Area 2011/2015/2019) and some of which he also won: among these also Area Sanremo for the 2011 edition together with the singer- songwriter Stefano Cherchi with the song “Confini” in Sardinian, Sicilian and Italian and the competition for authors “Genoa x you 2016”, which leads him to become an author for Universal Music Publishing for a year of internship contract.

On 28 October 2016, under the stage name Maurizio Chi, his first album entitled “Due” was released, produced by the Paperboatsongs label directed by Chisari himself and distributed by Believe Digital.

The album is anticipated by the release of the singles Eyes to the sea, Malintenti, Nudo and finally Bianco.

The videos of the first three singles are directed by the well-known Calabrian filmmaker Giacomo Triglia while Bianco is a beautiful graphic work by the animator Roberto Biadi.

The album “Due” investigates the experience of living together and becomes like a concept on the number that Maurizio likes to define “imperfect”.

Over thirty dates in major Italian cities and two years of tour to present the debut album in clubs, squares and theaters.

Finally, March and April 2018 see Chisari live protagonist of “Music in miniature”, the tour in the smallest and most beautiful historical theaters in Italy, of which he is also the creator and artistic co-director.

Accompanied by an international band, the tour extended to ten different regions of the Italian peninsula.

In May 2019 he records a first album in English in Milan in the studio thanks to a crownfounding campaign for which he also realizes the live presentation in Veneto. The release of the album was scheduled for 2020 and will be postponed due to the pandemic.

In July 2019 Chisari makes a big leap and decides to move to Sydney in Australia where he currently lives and composes his music.

A few months after his arrival, the fortuitous encounter with the Australian mandoloncellist and guitarist of Sicilian origins Luke Wright takes place.

This meeting leads him to a change of course and to experience his origins, his true Sicilian nature.

On April 21, 2021, the release of La Jaggia, the single that will anticipate the album “D’amuri e raggia”, which will then be released on May 21, 2021.

The project entirely in Sicilian is the result of experimental research done in Australia by Chisari and Wright recorded at the Damien Gerard Sound Studios on the Central Coast under the supervision of the American sound engineer Andrew Back. The Australian drummer and percussionist of Lebanese origins Micheal Nouri also collaborated on the recordings.

The mastering of the disc, on the other hand, was carried out at the King Willy Sound studios in Tasmania. On May 20, 2022, in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute of Sydney, Chisari is the protagonist of the tribute to Franco Battiato “Parallel universes”.


The concert that took place at the Auditorium of the Italian Forum Cultural Center in Leichhardt was sold out and became the official debut to the public of the great Australian metropolis.
