Cleo T. + Russell Swallow + DJ Ben Osborne
Musician, poet and performer, Cleo T. delivers a cinematic and theatrical electronic sound. Mixing acoustic instruments and powerful beats along with electronic soundscapes, each songs is a poem. The powerful and emotional songstress lights the way to a modern and soulful Pop ritual. The art and music of Cleo T. is an invitation to SHINE our own light, together and beyond any kind of borders. A digital interactive installation turns the live show into a sensorial experience, carried along by soulful vocals, hypnotic cellos and shamanic guitars. May our feet go deeper in the ground and our eyes look further towards the sky. Time to SHINE our brightest.
