SANTA SEMELI AND THE MONKS Short Info

Exploding onto the international music scene Santa Semeli and the Monks is a duo who’s music catalogue consists of over 70 songs, covering a vast variety of musical genres including rock'n roll, classic songwriting, punk and ballads.

In June 2014 SSATM independently released the dance single ‘Arrivederci Bob’ through their label Cosima Music, which Paul Sexton from the Sunday times described as “A lot of fun!” comparing it to the coolness of new wave band the Waitresses. Icelandic national paper Morgunbladid called it an “Upbeat dance tune with witty and cryptic lyrics. A poetic explosion!” The song reached #3 in the Cyprus i-Tunes charts.

In November 2014 SSATM completed their self titled debut album which John Hind from the Observer described: "Lovely, stirring, sensitive, clever and funny tunes and show!"
In October 2014 SSATM embarked on a small promotional tour. They played the Menil Fest in Paris, CBGB festival in New York, The Hamptons International Film Festival, in Nicosia and Reykjavik part of Iceland Airwaves.

Semeli’s volcanic stage presence has been compared to the likes of Kate Bush, Liza Minnelli, Siouxie and the Banshees, Patti Smith, Rita Hayworth and Marlene Dietrich.
