Laura Mvula

12 Feb 2016

One of the most distinctive musical talents to come out of the UK in recent years, Laura Mvula is a one-woman symphony, whose classical training flourishes in songwriting that fuses orchestral soul with poetic lyricism.

Nominated for two BRIT Awards, a Mercury Prize and an Ivor Novello Award, her critically acclaimed debut album Sing to the Moon was re-recorded at London’s legendary Abbey Road Studios with conductor Jules Buckley and the Dutch Metropole Orkest, taking her stunning debut to new heights.

Laura has recently collaborated with the legendary Nile Rodgers, combining his upbeat sound with her thrilling harmonies.

Mvula's exquisite voice is one of undeniable uniqueness, deserving of every bit of attention it gets. Expect to hear new material from her eagerly anticipated new album in what promises to be a very special performance.
