The artists at a glance...

Natu Camara

Natu Camara is the former leader of West Africa’s first all-female hip-hop group, The Ideal Black Girls and is heralded by her adoring fans back home as the Tina Turner of Guinea. Her first solo song “Dimedi” is a sublime blend of afro-rock, pop and soul, recorded in Mali with many of the musicians from the band of the legendary Salif Keita. 

Hervé Coeur

Singing poet Hervé Coeur engages and transcends the alternative music movement with a mix-cultures sensibility. He bridges the influences of three worlds, the United States, France and the greater Americas and has performed and shared stages with The Temptations, Brian McKnight, Lisa Ekdahl, Eliane Elias, Geoffrey Oryema, Elisa, Ky-Mani Marley, The Fugees, Matisyahu and more.
