Celeste Caramanna is a London-based singer-songwriter. At the age of three her father, sensing her passion, bought her a portable cassette player which she always carries with her.
At twelve she began to formally study singing and piano and appeared on the Italian TV programme ‘Io Canto’, which gave her a platform to perform with many established Italian popstars. For the next few years she worked on her vocals while collaborating with songwriters and musicians to write her debut album, +18, which was released in June 2017. In 2018 she began to perform in London with a mix of her own songs and reinterpretations of classics from samba to bossa nova, exploring the rhythms and sounds of Brazilian music as well as funk, soul and pop. Celeste has performed all over the world and in legendary venues including the Union Chapel (London) and Paradiso (Amsterdam), opening for major artists such as Milton Nascimento and Martinho Da Vila. In 2019 Celeste began a three EP project, a triptych called ‘Anthropophagic’, a single path with three different moods: the first Brazilian, the second funk, soul and pop, and the third and last a uniquely ‘Celestial’ sound that blends all these musical influences to create something more personal, characteristic and distinctively Celeste. The previous two EPS were released, respectively, on June 14 2019 and November 29 2019, and the final EP is out on Friday October 23.
