Headline Artists include:

Ibeyi – The music of this French duo covers impressive ground, combining multiple languages (English, French, Spanish, and Yoruba), traditional percussion techniques, with an added elegance of jazz and electronic sampling. In just a short span from their initial 2014 single, they’ve made their way to playing major international festivals, returning this year to Coachella again. 

Fatoumata Diawara – 2019 has already been an exciting year with Diawara’s Grammy performance and two nominations for Best World Music Album and Best Dance Recording. An exhilarating blend of traditional African music, funk, and jazz, Fatoumata’s singing and guitar playing are not to be missed. 

Jungle by Night – This modern Afro-beat, jazz, and funk group from Amsterdam bring a fresh new creative element to the establishment of jazz, putting them on the frontline of musical innovation today. Jungle by Night’s 2018 album “Livingstone” captures the group’s trajectory towards fusing electronic sounds with a jazz vocabulary. Jungle by Night has also appeared at  major festivals such as Pinkpop, Glastonbury. 

 J.B. Dunckel​- From the French duo “AIR,” Dunckel’s solo work is an impressive combination of electronic music and informed musicianship, as Dunckel draws musical inspiration from both classical and electronic music pioneers. JB Dunckel’s 2018 album is self-described as “futuristic and optimistic, (a) contemporary sound odyssey.” 

Adam Naas – This up and coming Parisian singer, has drawn comparisons to Prince and  Michael Jackson from the press. He manages to project both an introspective and powerful  voice in his music. Both his 2016 single “Fading Away” and his 2018 album “The Love Album”   have received critical acclaim. 

We can’t wait to join in the fun!
