Cloud Explosion


Cloud Explosion is pushing the boundaries of Rock, Jazz and improvisation with an enchanting vintage sound and engaging grooves. Their music is reminiscent of the Rock and Roll from the late 60s and 70s with beautifully melodic songs contrasted by heavy riffs and psychedelic passages. To their mostly original songs they add tunes from the South American folklore and the improvisational freedom these three musicians internalized coming from the world of Jazz. The trio has released their self-titled debut vinyl in 2019, which they celebrated with a release show at the 55 Bar in New York.

Cloud Explosion are: German guitar player Elias Meister (who performs with record-breaking 31-time Grammy winner Residente, tours with his live electronic band N/um and has performed with such notable Jazz players as Leo Genovese, George Garzone and Kevin Hays), Francesco Marcocci from Italy on bass (who has performed and/or recorded with Mon Laferte, Dave Liebman, Lulu Gainsbourg and more), and Argentinian drummer Juan Chiavassa (who has shared the stage and/or recorded with Mike Stern, Bad Bunny, Esperanza Spalding).
