Cosmic Bloom Band Cosmic Bloom Paris The “Cosmic Bloom” Universe was formed in 2013 in Paris. Jesus Manuel, Emma Grace, Victor Antoine and Pascal Le Pape met in Montmartre, during Cabaret Voltaire (an open evening at the “Petit Théatre du Bonheur”) ,so unexpectedly giving life to the first concert of “Cosmic Bloom”. The alchemy was so intense that an improvisation led to a shamanic concert of folk rock music (a genre that the band will later define as “psyco-mystic-flower-folk”) , giving birth to a project which is still evolving. In its early days the group performed in the Paris underground scene and after few months the songs inspired by Jesus Manuel were completed with arrangements and suggestions from the other members of the band, leading to the release of their first album “Soul Service” in July 2014. Cosmic Bloom's diverse influences are fused in their musical, artistic, theatrical and spiritual performances. On the release of 'Soul Service' the band started a European tour with a performance at Bootleg in Paris, with further dates in France, Italy and Greece. The band's second album “Star-east” will be released in October 2015. The lyrics of the songs are based on poems written by Jesus Manuel and Emma Grace. A new hippy view of the world. Cosmic vision. Harmony. Beauty. Attempting to give meaning to a meaningless world. Cosmic Bloom are: Jesus Manuel Baldassare: Guitar, Voice, percussion. From Italy. Emma Grace Arkin: Violin, Voice, Guitar.
