Cleido is a proudly Angolan Afro-House DJ based in London. He was born and raised in South Africa and he has a deep desire to champion the sounds of African dance music. Cleido fuses together an eclectic mix of Afro-House with deep house, downtempo and melodic techno to cater to audiences with diverse musical tastes.
Through each vibrant set delivered by Cleido, the crowd is exposed to a number of unique sounds from a variety of regions in Africa, with not one region taking precedence over another. The London-based DJ revels not only in the fusion of sounds from different regions of the continent but also in introducing his crowd to new, atypical sounds, keeping them on their feet well into the night.
At just 22 years old, Cleido is not your average DJ. Not only is he well-versed in the craft of visual arts, but he also has a bachelor’s degree in Economics under his belt. Although the artist considers himself a “Jack of all trades”, with a broad knowledge of several artistic disciplines, his love for music, (especially Afro-House) surpasses them all. As Cleido takes London by storm, above all else, he wishes to captivate and dazzle listeners with the rich musical culture that the African continent has to offer.
