Stunning Sierra Leone / Irish soul music.
LOAH is a new soulful contemporary jazz-leaning singer you might have seen at Electric Picnic or Body & Soul’s Shapeshifter’s Ball this year. She’s playing her debut headline gig with Ensemble Music on Saturday in Twisted Pepper and on evidence of the above video for her song ‘Cortége’, you might want to be there.
The song title refers to a solemn procession and it is sung in the Sierra Leone languages Sherbro and Mend. Loah will be joined on-stage on Saturday by a band of Irish jazz and soul musicians. Here’s an Irish Times interview with her.
