19 Apr DAOUD
In Daoud we see Charlotte stepping in her with seven-league strides, decisive and proud, wearing a self-created, lace-like see-through dress fluttering behind her, her face, chador-like, wrapped in a silvery cloth, wearing a silver mask as a cap at the back of her neck, adding to the mystery.

In this video DAOUD presents A Dust Odyssey: the debut album that includes 10 chapters, 10 wastelands, 10 stories, and a video inspired by the Homeric epic poem, of ancient Greece, relating the ten-year wanderings of Odysseus, king of Ithaca, after the Trojan War. With a hunger for new experience, DAOUD walks for 10 years, through the wastelands of the west, with an air of universal longing.
