The Brazilian poet LUANDA CASELLA performs as a special guest with Electric Barbarian. Luanda Casella is a performer, a writer and most of all a story teller. She uses both rhythm and tonality of words to create a sound atmosphere. No matter the language, a story is told. The poet from Sao Paulo is featured on three tracks of the new album: "Minirock from the Sun".
Her poems are reflecting every day thoughts
and situations in an abstract way. She is a virtuoso in the performance of spoken word with an astonishing flow.
