Charismatic and soulful British star performs in Prague for the first time

A singer, pianist and songwriter Laura Mvula mixes elements of soul, jazz, and r&b into a fiery 21st-century brew. She has been called a Nina Simone for the modern age. Her 2013 album ‘Sing to the Moon’ announced a major new talent on the scene, and its follow-up, the critically-acclaimed ‘The Dreaming Room,’ established her as a major star.

Mvula is equally at home playing shows with her band or working with symphony orchestras on ambitious arrangements of her work. Conductor and arranger Troy Miller is a frequent collaborator on these projects – the two performed a memorable concert with the London Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican in 2017 – and Miller himself will be holding the baton at Mvula’s Prague concert.

Mvula has collaborated with a range of major artists including David Byrne (who personally requested that she join his last tour), Robert Glasper, Esperanza Spalding, Nile Rogers, Gregory Porter, etc.
