The Jetty Sessions presented by NOVA – Grace Barbé

Event Information

Grace Barbé, on our epic jetty stage – this one-night-only pop-up venue is complete with sunken sand lounges, firepits, beach dancing and summer bar…

Grace Barbe hails from the sunburnt Indian Ocean islands of the Seychelles, where a colourful history of slavery, pirates, coups d’etat and coconuts have produced a unique Kreol rhythm, language and culture. Drawing from the diverse cultural melange of the islands, Grace’s music fuses the tropical rhythms and dances of the slaves with psychedelic rock, afrobeat, reggae and pop.

In performance the trio conjures a bewilderingly huge sound – Grace sings over her own complex polyrhythmic bass lines to Mauritian drummer Hardy Perrine’s authentic island grooves while guitarist Jamie Searle adds a dense layer of Afro – guitar sorcery.
