GRRRL with HOTA Choir at Festival 2018
GRRRL is a bespoke electronic music collaboration between independent, revolutionary women artists from around the world, coming together to tell their collective stories of life, conflict, inequality and change through music.
Fusing together sounds of dark techno, ghetto bass, hip hop, dancehall, reggae, soul and electronica.
Directed by Brazil’s Laima Leyton (Mixhell/Soulwax), GRRRL features an eclectic mix of influential artists including Mercury Prize-winning rapper Speech Debelle, queen of Brazilian dancehall Lei Di Dai, Zimbabwe’s rap queen AWA African Women Arise, ‘The Young Lioness’ of Africa Wiyaala, original nu-jazz and folk singer from Cape Town Nono Nkoane, British Bangladeshi singer Sohini Alam and electronic artist/synth player from UK/Ghana Afrodeutsche.
This special evening is supported by the HOTA Choir with a soulful, contemporary repertoire under the direction of Astrid Jorgensen.
