Never miss another 'Laura Mvula' show
Other Voices: Laura Mvula
Dingle's annual Other Voices event, internationally renowned for its intimate recordings of one-off live performances, comes to London for the first time in April 2013.
Produced in association with the Barbican, the London setting is Wilton’s Music Hall in the heart of East London, keeping in the spirit of what Other Voices is about: An intimate venue and a small audience, an eclectic line-up of established and emerging artists.
As tickets are very limited, the concerts will be streamed online and to venues around Wilton’s and East London as well as back to the Barbican to enable a much wider audience to appreciate this very special event.
Details of streaming venues will be published soon on the Barbican website and admission to all live streaming locations will be free from The Barbican facebook page www.facebook.com/BarbicanContemporaryMusic/
Although this event is free, tickets are allocated via a prize draw. See www.facebook.com/BarbicanContemporaryMusic for further information.
R'n'B singer-songwriter from Birmingham combining elements of gospel, jazz and experimental electronica. The Guardian described her as sounding "like hearing Billie Holiday with the Beach Boys", while Pitchfork claimed "Mvula shares considerable DNA with Nina Simone, most obviously in her unyielding charisma, her musical virtuosity, and her profoundly central blackness. Mvula’s voice also shares some of Simone’s rawness, as well as its facility juxtaposing vulnerability and strength." Her 2013 debut album 'Sing to the Moon', which reached no.9 on the UK album chart, was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize. She was then nominated again in 2016 for her follow-up release; the critically acclaimed 'The Dreaming Room'.
