Elysia Crampton is a Bolivian-American sound artist that performs and speaks around the world. Her debut album, American Drift, was released in August 2015 to critical acclaim.

Her upcoming sophomore release, Elysia Crampton presents: Demon City (with Chino Amobi, Why Be, Rabit, & Lexxi), is a concept album that works as an epic poem, existing as an official document of the Severo style. Release date: July 22nd 2016 via Break World Records

Her new live show, Dissolution of The Sovereign: A Time Slide Into The Future, is a play that unfolds as a DJ production and performance that works alongside Demon City. The narrative follows Aymara Revolutionary Bartolina Sisa’s limbs after they were severed, continuing from the perspective of the entrails as they turn into stone, petrified on a time slide into a distant future where the sun has gone out and trans humanoid arachnids have inherited a world free of the prison industrial complex.

The work is Elysia’s attempt to bridge the Aymara oral history tradition/theater legacy with her own trans femme abolitionist grasp of futurity, always amidst the cataclysmic, irreducible horizon of coloniality.
