Drawing from the diverse cultural melange of her native Seychelles, Grace Barbé fuses the tropical rhythms and dances of the slaves with rock, afrobeat, reggae and pop.
Grace has been enticing audiences to get up and shake their coconuts since the release of her debut album Kreol Daughter in 2009, with appearances all over India and the Indian Ocean as well as at Australia’s leading music festivals, including Womadelaide, WOMAD New Zealand, Byron Bay Bluesfest and Woodford Folk Festival. Her band has been awarded “Best World Act” five years running in her current home state of Western Australia.
Passionately committed to showcasing and developing the Kreol culture with which she is so deeply connected, Grace is touring her new album Welele! with a trio featuring younger sibling Joelle Barbé, an incredibly exciting and dynamic drummer. Grace weaves a percussive spell on the bass guitar while singing her enchanting songs of island life, love, curries and coups d’etat. Exhibiting the extraordinary musical ESP that only siblings can possess, witnessing these sisters perform is an unforgettable experience
Grace Barbe is joined on the night by Adelaide’s own master of West African rhythm Bortier Okoe.
Don’t miss a chance to watch Grace take Afro-Kreol to the world!
