Serious Space: An Evening with DEVA MAHAL
Wednesday 16 May
All orders will be subject to a fee of £1.50 except if your tickets are free or if you are a member
In a nutshell
Powerhouse vocalist and songwriter Deva Mahal performs her unique brand of soul in a special live show!
What to Expect
Deva’s particular brand of soul embraces her blues roots, with an infusion of gospel-tinged vocals, funk rhythms, jazz-like arrangements, and an R&B sensibility. Her undeniable vocal talent never ceases to blow audiences away, and her star continues to rise, with new music due out on Motéma in 2018.
Immersing herself in the musical culture of New York City, Deva has had the pleasure of collaborating with Jaleel Bunton of TV on the Radio, Binky Griptite of Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Living Color, and the New York Pops Orchestra, and has performed onstage alongside such legends as Etta James, Dianne Reeves, Maceo Parker, Bettye Lavette, The Roots, and Cyndi Lauper. She is also the daugher of legendary blues musician Taj Mahal, with whom she wrote the song ‘Never Let You Go’ on his Grammy Award nominated album ‘Maestro’.
