ELLIKA & SOLO & RAFAEL have not been active on the music scene for quite a while. The reasons are of a personal nature, nothing to do with the music. Solo Cissokho had quite a serious health issue which required a longer period of treatment, rest and recuperation. He is on the mend now! The group still meet and rehearse together, but they have not been able to tour as a group. Things will return to normal in the next few months. So don't forget about us...and we look forward to meeting you, our fans and audience, again in the new future!
We are in the middle of the summer . We have just had some rehersal days in the countryside.
After that a great weekend in Urkult festival in the north of Sweden. We played a happy concert with a great audience dancing in the cold so called summer weather.
For us it was such a happiness to be able to play again after a long break .
Next gig will be in STOCKHOLM CULTURE FESTIVAL august 14 at Skeppsbro stage 21.00-22 WELCOME!
