SINGER-SONGWRITER VIMALA ROWE
August 8th - 12th 2017 performing with Paco Peña's Dance Company, Sadler's Wells.
'Vimala Rowe took the role of Billie Holiday in Alex webb's music-theatre show Cafe Society Swing, but though flawless tributes to the great jazz vocalists are a speciality of hers, she is also an award-winning original composer and a world musician trained in Hindustani classical techniques. This beautiful album (Out of the Sky) pairs her with chameleonic British guitarist John Etheridge, who has worked with Stephane Grappelli, Soft Machine and John Williams. The pair sweep across musical horizons here: from the terrifying Nina Simone-like opening and quietly impassioned intimacies of Blue Breeze; the imploring east african ballad Malaika, sung in Swahili; to an Aramaic prayer given a haunting treatment of almost motionless power; and an effotlessly resonant account of Detour Ahead.' - John Fordham, The Guardian
'There is no question that Rowe is one of the most distinctive singers to come along in some time' - Clive Davis, The Sunday Times
'Vimala Rowe is Sensational' - The Arts Desk
'A captivating and seemingly effortless soulful voice' - Justin Wilkes, KISS FM
Winner of The Indy Music Award - Best Soul/Jazz/Funk Act
