avatar for Elo


Elo is a young and mysterious artist inspired by passed and current experiences, and uses her heart to express her world inward and out. She draws from her sound from different genres of music including jazz, pop, house music, soul but mainly rock, her fears, love and dreams. Lerato ventured into the music industry by taking an immediate leap from studying as a vocalist, into the real world of music publishing with Universal Music Publishing Africa. After a year she then decided to take another leap of faith by becoming her own fulltime brand, Elo.
Being lectured by Connie Bentlage, Lara Thomas, Graeme Currie (played bass for Sixto Rodriguez) and RJ Benjamine it has been noticed that within this short space of professional guidance her growth as a professional herself has grown to being more than satisfactory.
Her performing career became a reality while performing with one of her lecturers (Graeme Currie) at the Grill House in Rosebank while studying. From this, opportunities of being one of the backing vocalists for the famous group Kwela Tebza and Vusi Nova (also being one the video girls in his big hit cover I’d Rather Go Blind) alongside Nkuli Dube (daughter of the late Lucky Dude) and Boki (one of 2010’s top four SA Idols finalists). She also performed at the Feather Awards supporting the award-winning singer from the Kalawal camp, Busiswa. Not forgetting Ivory Coast for the South African Embassy celebrating SA culture.
Highlights in 2014 Elo had her own show performed under the Youth Unplugged by the Joburg Theatre at the Joburg Theatre as an initiative to commemorate the youth of 1976. She has also performed alongside Nothende in Ivory Coast for the South African Embassy based in Cote d’Ivoire.
