Berlin-based band Il Civetto formed in 2010; after a spontaneous performance on a Berlin train that got all the commuters dancing, they were booked on the spot for a gig at a passenger's party. It all took off from there -- more bookings, two EPs, two music videos. By 2015, Il Civetto have played more than 250 concerts. They are regulars at the coolest Berlin clubs like Ritter Butzke and Kater Holzig. And abroad; Austria, Denmark, the Netherlands, and Turkey have been on their road map. 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 cajón, bongos, djembe, snare drum, and cow bell. Il Civetto's songs are never too heavy, but always danceable. Latin passion meets oriental mysticism, created by Berlin boys. Their lyrics are a mix of French, Portuguese, and languages that have yet to be invented. For their self-titled debut album, old and new songs have been rearranged and beefed up with multiple instruments. The stage action is translated into multilayered studio sound. The result is mostly uplifting, swinging, and groovy, but sometimes also mysterious, exotic, and melancholic. Il Civetto's sound can be instantly recognized. Singer Leon's passionate voice has the kind of timbre that can mirror euphoria as well as longing. Somehow their songs manage to make audiences dance wildly at their concerts while listeners relax to the same songs at home. Their fan base grows with every concert.
