Festival favourites Black Voices return to Lichfield with their own unique take on the legendary Nina Simone, an artist whose uncompromising stance for social inclusion could not be more relevant in today’s climate. Black Voices had the honour of supporting her in concert many times in France, Germany and the UK and are joined for this special celebration by a 4-piece band and a 5-voice backing ensemble. Featuring her classic songs, Celebrating Nina rejoices in the music, faith, love and life of a much-loved and accomplished musician and vocalist, whose artistry still speaks to everyone who hears her…
BLACK VOICES is the leading, all-female a cappella collective in Europe. The diverse range of musicality and genres in their performances has garnered an international following, drawing in an audience by the simple beauty and power of the human voice via the open and free expression that singing in the black oral tradition promotes.
Such is their critical acclaim and respect amongst the music industry that BLACK VOICES has opened concerts for some of the greatest names in music including Ray Charles, Nina Simone, Hugh Masekela, Miriam Makeba and Take 6.
