FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

February 23, 2010

RELEASE OF CIRCO EUROPIA’S DEBUT ALBUM, ‘CIRCLE OF NEON STARS’

Los Angeles, CACLCX has released the debut recording of the Macedonian darkwave cabaret project Circo Europia. Circle of Neon Stars is the brainchild of legendary Balkan vocalist Goran Trajkoski, whose projects included the rock band Anastacia (who worked with director Milcho Manchevski, providing the soundtrack for his award-winning film “Before The Rain”, and whose projects included the rock band Anastacija) and as vocalist for respected rock band Mizar.

Circo Europia combines the music of cabaret, inspired by such political critics as Bertholt Brecht and Kurt Weill, torch vocalists like Edith Piaf and Ute Lemper, and a touch of gothic rock to add weight to the compositions.

The Carrera-Linn Cultural Exchange (CLCX) was established in 2004 to expose talent emerging from the former Yugoslavia to a wider world audience. It represents several artists, including composer Borut Kržišnik and sound designer Alexander Kopeikin.
