Tokyo, the 7th single from Tournai singer Elia Rose is released on December 3. A few days later, on the 12th, she will be on stage at the Botanique, in Brussels.

“Lhe concert planned at the Botanique has already been postponed four times because of the health crisis, deplores Tournai singer Elia Rose, alias Elia Fragione. Also, I am really impatient to finally be able to meet the public there on December 12th. I will be on stage at the Rotonde with my 4 musicians: Lorenzo di Maio, on guitar, Jacques Pili, on bass, Cedric Raymond, on keyboard and Santo Scinta on drums … “

Without forgetting her faithful companion: the keytar, a synthesizer carried like a guitar, which she completely revamped during confinement. Her Brussels concert will give Elia the opportunity to perform her various songs, most of which are inspired by her “popetic” universe, both pop and poetic. A style that happily nods to the 80s with this slightly Kitsch side that also forges the charm of the young Tournaisienne. Among the titles that Elia will perform in the capital, is the one that can be found on her 7th single, the official release of which is scheduled for December 3: “Tokyo”.

During confinement, Elia gave a new look to his legendary instrument: the keytar, a kind of synth-guitar.

Confined but not inactive …

If Elia and her musician friends had to deal with the constraints imposed in the context of the fight against the pandemic, the singer did not remain inactive for all that.

It was also noticed at the Belgofolies de Spa as well as at the “Bulle d’Ere” festival, in 2021 a Light event which replaced the traditional “Legend’Ere” festival, redesigned because of … Covid.

What we love about Elia: its generosity, its sincerity, its madness and its creativity. These qualities have earned it the support of Proximus, which broadcast its music all summer on the new Pickx + channel.

The EP discreetly released in May will be celebrated in…. December

The concert at the Botanique will also give Elia the opportunity to celebrate, with the musicians and her audience, the release (in May 2021) of her EP “Love is All I Need”.

An “Extended Play” of six tracks which prefigure a future album. But that is another story that we will have the opportunity to come back to at the appropriate time …
