GRACE BARBE NEW ALBUM LAUNCH THIS JULY

Grace Barbé will release her much awaited 3rd album FANM:WOMAN on Friday, July 5th at Freo.Social with support from afro party starters Soukouss Internationale and guest DJs.

The show will mark Grace’s first album release since 2013’s highly acclaimed Welele!, in which time she has won another 5 WAMi awards for “Best World Act”, performed as far afield as New Zealand, India and East Africa and collaborated with Afrobeat legend Tony Allen.

FANM:WOMAN continues Grace’s love affair with the music of her native Indian Ocean with songs from the Seychelles, Mauritius and Madagascar.

Heavily featured on FANM:WOMAN is seggae, the brain melting fusion of Jamiacan reggae and Indian Ocean sega pioneered by Mauritian musician Kaya, whose song Sime La Limiere is covered. Amongst the other rhythms utilised are sega and tsinge, whilst even Western pop/rock gets a look in with Je T’aime. Grace sings in Kreol, English, French and Malagasy.
