About The Manes

The Manes's profile picture
Acoustic duo
London
An acoustic duo with a full set made of dreams, fun, love and hope.

The Manes, formed by Aldo and Eleonora. When Aldo is playing his guitar each note tells you a story, showing the different nuances and musical influences with his instrument, Eleonora and her soulful voice will softly accompany you in every little corner of your heart, making you laugh, smile and cry. Both coming from Latin countries, although very far from each other, Argentina and Italy, they can combine their music background into a set made of dreams, fun, hope and love. The sound they commit to exploring blends the different atmospheres of the genres they are walking you through. With The Manes the setlist will always include all time classics, modern and some exquisite pearls of world music.

I had the pleasure to hosts The Manes duo at 1001 nights Cabaret last March at Privee of Knightsbridge. The experience with this amazing duet was fantastic. They totally captivated the audience and filled the space with their talent, charisma and strong energy. It was not only me that was enchanted by their music but also my guests gave me just amazing feedback about this act. I can not recommend enough how wonderful artists they are. I Can’t wait to see them live again! Tahaty

We saw The Manes play at Privé in Knightsbridge at the start of March. Such a beautiful stage presence! They did some interpretations of powerful diva anthems, Eleonora has a soulful, gorgeous voice and a confident and charismatic stage presence. Aldo and his guitar weaved fantastic music to accompany such performance. They left us wanting more!
