After a spontaneous performance on a Berlin underground train which got the whole wagon dancing, they were engaged on the spot by a passenger for a gig at his party.
It took off from there: By now il Civetto have played more than 300 concerts in germany or abroad, have released an album and EPs on Eastblok Music and Acker Records and they are regulars at the coolest Berlin clubs like Ritter Butzke, Sisyphos or Kater Blau. Il Civetto lives in the here and now. They are typical city buskers, constantly improvising. Their set up consists of acoustic guitar, bass, ukulele, clarinet, saxophone and a self-made percussion set of cajòn, bongos, djembe, snare drum and cow bell. This gives them wide options to create new sounds and mixtures on stage every time. Il Civetto’s songs are never too heavy, but always danceable. Latin passion meets oriental mysticism, created by Berlin boys.
