PizzaExpress Live (Holborn)

‘Antropofagico I’ is the result of a journey driven by Celeste’s love for brazilian music. A night full of pure emotions and encounters, of joy and fun, of memories and feelings, when Celeste interpretes her maximum references which come from this musical world and she will present her new EP, with 4 original song, performed for the first time to an audience, with different influences but with one Brazilian root. This EP has the collaborations of marvellous artists, who worked on the EP from London, Italy, Brazil and USA. ‘Antropofagico I’ is the first EP of a triptych, followed by ‘Antropofagico II’ and ‘Antropofagico III’. The key word, that starts this series, is Antropophagy, an old obscure word, but it describes Celeste's attitude to music perfectly! She swallows all the many genres of music and lyrics which fascinate her, mixes them with her own unique artistry and humanity, spitting them back out all mixed up, but now all definitively Celeste! 

Thus, her shows do not just present a world-class voice, (though hers is certainly that), but also multi-cultures, rhythms and poetry - an emotional roller-coaster experience for her audiences - and an unforgettable one. 

Although only just in her 20s, CELESTE has already performed across the world from Brazil to Italy, as well as France, Ireland, Portugal, and Gt. Britain, accompanied always by her loyal and sensational band. London in particular, has taken her to its heart and she's performed in all its top Jazz venues from Ronnie Scott's to The PizzaExpress Soho Jazz Club, from The Union Chapel to The 606 Jazz Club. 

This year will see the release of her second recording project, which shows the diversity of her musical journey. A triptych of original songs which show her growth and development as she discovers and explores the wide world of music. ‘Antropofagico II’ will be released in October of this year and ‘Antropofagico III’ will be released in 2020.
