Ella Jarman-Pinto

Ella Jarman-Pinto is a critically acclaimed composer, described by Classic FM in 2020 as ‘one of the UK’s most exciting music-makers’ and someone who ‘openly challenges a lot of the long-standing preconceptions about who a composer is’.

Ella writes for TV and Films, including award-winning short film, ‘AstraZeneca – The Attack’, (Havas Lynx, Maker Projects), and documentary short, ‘Embrace Your Pleasure’, with director Keely Liles. Ella was recently commissioned to write, ‘Lucky’, a personal response to Black Lives Matter, by BBC Radio 3 for their ‘Postcards from Composers’ scheme; and has also received repeat Radio 3 broadcasts in 2020 of her song, ‘This Little Rose’, (Nadine Benjamin, Nicole Panizza, ‘Emergence’), which was also described as ‘one of the most memorable songs on this disc’ by Music-Web International.

Ella has had repeat performances of her work by BBC Singers and was Composer in Residence with Streetwise Opera from 2016-17.
