About Pink Oculus

Pink Oculus is the alter ego of Amsterdam-based singer/producer Esperanza Denswil. She is an experimental hip-hop/soul/jazz artist who convinces her audience with innovative mix of raps, vocals, melodies and hypnotic beats. In 2016, Pink Oculus released her first EP 'Delicious' (Top Notch), and began to gain notoriety in Europe for her charismatic stage performance. After performances at The Great Escape (UK) 2016 and Transmusicalles (Fr), 2016, followed by impressive shows at Eurosonic/Noorderslag 2017, Pink Oculus ended up as the highlight of the festival on many lists. This resulted in many bookings across Europe, including legendary festivals such as Glastonbury (UK), North Sea Jazz Festival(NL) as well as Down The Rabbit Hole (NL).
