Laura Mvula

Innovative British singer-songwriter, and two-time MOBO award winner, Laura Mvula, visits Canterbury this autumn for a very special Festival performance.

Mvula first sang in church and later with all female a cappella group Black Voices. Since then her career has seen her perform on Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage twice, work with legendary producer and composer Nile Rodgers, and sing as part of The Queen’s Birthday Celebrations at The Royal Albert Hall.

Exploring identity, personal dilemmas and social issues, Mvula’s 2013 debut Sing to the Moon and 2016 follow up The Dreaming Room, garnered a
multitude of award nominations and received wide-spread critical acclaim.
Discussing her track Phenomenal Woman, inspired by Maya Angelou,
Mvula told The Independent:

I try and depend a lot on the women that I surround myself with, the women that through their own vulnerability and ridiculous strength are still moving mountains and doing extraordinary things every day.
