World Music Cafe - Grace Barbé

BEMAC PRESENTS 

World Music Café - Grace Barbé's

The Afro Sound of the Seychelles 

 

WHAT: Seychelles islander Grace Barbé is the real deal, a genuinely exotic world music star for the 21st century, with the talent, looks and voice to match. Grace's soulful music reflects and celebrates the diverse cultural influences of her Indian Ocean heritage.

The new album Welele! represents definitive manifesto of Grace’s “Afro-Kreol” style - a colourful and energetic fusion of tropical island rhythms with African percussion, reggae, pop, rock and latin flavours.

In performance, Grace lights up the stage with a vibrant and engaging presence that compels the audience to get up and dance. Her voice is a remarkably powerful instrument, and as a songwriter she has a rare and natural gift for rhythm and melody. Playing guitar and bass, Grace sings in three languages; English, Kreol and French. Grace’s band has been awarded "Best World Act" an incredible five years running in her current home state of Western Australia. 

Following the release of her debut album "Kreol Daughter" in 2009, Grace has performed at major festivals all over the Indian Ocean (Mauritius, La Reunion and Seychelles), as well as at many of Australia's leading music festivals, including Womadelaide, WOMAD New Zealand, Byron Bay Bluesfest and Woodford Folk Festival.

Catch her while you can!

“Led by Grace Barbé, a charming, beautiful islander woman from the Seychelles, the band puts on an intricate, fun and engaging performance full of island reggae, creole rhythms, and complex, intense vocals in French, Creole and English - an amazing, uplifting experience.”  - Gordon Taylor of musichord.com
