With PTOLEMEA, singer and musician Priscila Da Costa walks on the thread of her destiny, accompanied by her musicians Remo Cavallini (guitarist), Yves Oek (bassist) and Martin Schommer (drummer). PTOLEMEA takes us on an acoustic and spiritual adventure, and rises along its musical creations with an alternative rock / dark folk style. This sound is unique and Priscila sees it like a glimpse of the Universe.
The name PTOLEMEA is not insignificant. It is inspired by the astronomer and astrologer Claudius Ptolemeus who studied “the harmony – or the music of the spheres”. This theory is based on the idea that the universe is governed by harmonious numerical relationships, (...) the distances between planets corresponding to musical intervals. For the singer, the expansion of the universe is connected to the expansion of all living souls. She chose this name in a desire to share the key steps of her musical and spiritual journey which defines her identity as a woman artist. Also, nature is sacred and is an integral part of her approach.
The magic of this project lies in the fact that its captivating music emerges from the connection that the artist on the rise experiences with the cosmos. With her band, Priscila harvests an innovative sound signature that allows her to create what resonates deep within her soul. The energy of this sound and her voice touches both the public and the professionals and it is on stage where PTOLEMEA really reveals itself!
