Mayra Andrade + Son De La Frontera

Mayra Andrade + Son De La Frontera

A special double-bill featuring two nominees for this year’s BBC Radio 3 Awards for World Music, Mayra Andrade in the Newcomer category and Son de la Frontera in the Europe category.

Following her successful debut outing at the Barbican Mayra Andrade returns to headline her own concert as predicted by The Guardian “An effortlessly brilliant newcomer. For a little-known performer, she has it all – musicianship, charm and confidence. When she returns, she will surely be headlining”. Mayra draws on traditional Cape Verdean cadences and the African, Brazilian and jazz scenes of Paris to make her own gorgeous, acoustic sound. With a voice made to overwhelm souls and sway hearts, this artist is a stunning discovery. Her debut album Navega (Sterns) has also been a hit with the critics.

“Andrade effortlessly blends the morna tradition with elements of samba and a soupçon of francophone romance.” The Times
