PRESENTED BY FRANCESCA PINNA
Elephant Claps has ears that capture melodies, feet that stomp multigrooves and a polyphonic trunk.
It's a pachyderm based out of Milan, born out of the collaboration of six musical beings that weave rhythms and colours tinged with a mixture of afro-funk-reggae-soul-latin-jazz using only air, pressure and vocal chords.
Groove, improvisation and energy are the key words that characterize this “unconventional” sextet, which performs original music ranging across various soundscapes.
The band is composed of 3 female voices + 2 male voices+ beatbox.
They have been making a name for themselves in Italy since 2015.
In June 2016 they participated in the Solevoci international a cappella competition where they won first place in the pop/gospel category in addition to prizes for best project and best song arrangement.
In October 2016 the band took part to the international format TEDx at Teatro dal Verme in Milan.
In January 2017 they were invited at the London A Cappella Festival in UK.
In june 2017 the band won the first prize at the international a cappella festival in Aarhus, Denmark. The band's first album was released on April 2017.
