CLIO & MAURICE

It is composed of the soul singer Clio Colombo and the violinist Martin Nicastro (Pashmak). The duo was born in August of 2017 and since then the two played in some of the most popular venues in Milan. In 2018 they toured Germany and France, and they will be soon in England and Netherlands.

DAMON ARABSOLGAR

December 15, 2018

Born from a Persian father and a German-Italian mother, Damon Arabsolgar plays with the extremes of east and west.
After having toured Italy, Europe, Morocco, the Balkans and Russia playing with Pashmak (IT/US) and the duo Mombao (IT/SLO), he is currently in Morocco again with his solo act with just a piano, his voice and electronic arrangements on stage for intimate and raw concerts.
His songwriting floats between life in mid-ocean ridges and surreal stories he went through during his travels while the singing follows the extreme dynamics of the music and passes from catchy falsetto to an intimate and baritonal voice.
