Their esthetic, has been considered… as another or "other" approach, while keeping a mindful eye on the evolution of music without total abandon of tradition.
Some of Celectrixx's highlights include appearances at the Nublu Jazz Festival-Sao Paulo Brazil, featured speaker (Davenport) and performers at TEDx San Miguel de Allende Mexico, The Cannes Film Festival, and The BMW Series 4 Launch, Kuala Lumpor, Malaysia.
