    Rosita Kess " Dark nomadic worldly folkloric sound " "I love living in a constant state of motion and I think my music reflects this. I have a little Argentinian blood and the very first compositions I fell in love with were old recording by Mercedes Souza and Ariel Ramirez that my grandmother used to play in the house. Tango; it ‘s the music of the immigrants, it reflects their profound sense of loss and longing for the people and places they left behind. It was born in African‐Argentinian dance venues where Polkas, Mazurkas, Waltzes were mixed with the popular Habanera from Cuba and the Candombe rhythms from Africa. These are the major influences in my music.” Elysse is a Brooklyn-based vocalist and composer who creates cinematic, genre-bending music. A graduate of Princeton University at the age of 19, Elysse has subsequently spent her time in NYC exploring wide-ranging sounds and styles while performing in jazz, folk, indie-rock, and psychedelic salsa groups. She’s taken cues from these many influences to develop an eclectic, yet fundamentally emotive songwriting style propelled by her passion for words and images. In the Fall of 2016, she released “Eve,” a lush dreamscape that marks her debut single as a solo artist. Elysse’s debut EP is set to arrive in early Summer 2017. Stanton Swihart, All Music Guide, on Ed Pastorini: "A glorious cacophony of disjointed but somehow still euphonious dissonance."
