Meltdown @ Southbank Centre
Belvedere Road, Camden, London, UNITED KINGDOM
Following in the footsteps of Nina Simone, Bob Dylan and Bob Marley, the soul artist’s spine-tingling music speaks of freedom.
Breakthrough track ‘Nina’ was released in January 2018. Her transcendent debut album, Darkness at Play, followed in early 2019, produced by Om’Mas Keith (Frank Ocean, Erykah Badu, Jay-Z) and long-time collaborator Aston Rudi.
Born in Toulouse but of Senegalese origin, anais moved between Dublin and Dakar after her parents split, before finally settling in California.
Feeling stuck between languages, anais stayed silent for seven months. But after a period of making herself invisible, she felt compelled to bring her voice to the world.
‘Artists had always been the freedom leaders of the world,’ anais says, adding ‘my silence had become a burden, a chain I desperately needed to break out of.
‘My music had to reflect the times, so when Ms Simone said “I'll tell you what freedom is to me, no fear”, it felt like the song I needed to sing’.
