Claire Toribio, better known as Illustre, is a hurricane that sweeps trough the urban canyons and cleans the streets from the dust of the past. With ease she combines music and literature: Rap & Poetry. Her style is pointed, poetically playfull and at the same time rough and determined.
On stage with DJ Lowerz she transmits her incredible dynamism, her energy to the audiance, from floating to a moshpit.
ILLUSTRE has put a little of her history, of her personal path, in a silky, classy and accessible dress. Because she raps for people. The art of bringing together, connecting energies, telling a possible, widening the boundaries and forgetting the limits. Like the two poles of an iceberg, ILLUSTRE seeks to bring together the differences. Create a cohesion, an alchemy, in a society in upheaval. Out of codes and non-binary, calling into question the gender stereotypes, she likes to make complementary what tends to move away. And this is aimed at a whole generation, who must draw on its most buried complexes, to finally become themselves.
With her skills she impresses not only her audience but also the juries – she is the winner of the “Music.Arts.Design 2019” > springboard “Artist MADly Pink 2019” and the RAPPEUZ Contest 2020 with this freestyle.
This unique identity is found in her first album ILLE, a rap musical ode supported by modern productions between chill trap and turn up hip hop. Through a game of mirrors between feminine and masculine, she talks about our world, our identity, letting go, the place of women, she talks about perseverance, emotion …
The ILLE album will be the first stone of this powerful building. The stage will be her playground.
