ELENI ERA (DE)
Playground | Friday, August 3rd
Cypriot born musician Eleni Eracleous has been living in Berlin for the last 10 years. After her studies in piano and music teaching, she performed for several years in Germany’s most significant venues for classical music including the Konzerthaus and the Berlin Philharmonic Hall.
Even though Eleni first came out on the scene as a classical concert pianist, now conducting at the Berlin female youth choir, her original music chose a different direction. Her songs blend folk-y melodies and lush piano chord sequences, with silky choral vocal loops.
She has performed among others at the Schlossmediale Festival in Switzerland, the Lefkosia Loop Festival and the Fengaros Festival in Cyprus. Her first official release is a live video series titled eleven63 Sessions, produced by Louvana Records. The videos serve as a small taste of her upcoming debut album, which will be released in early 2019 by Louvana Records.
"Her intimate tunes can sketch an entire story. Every emotion is being translated into music, whilst retaining a wonderful lightness at the same time" (Monika Reidenbach)
