LAURYN HILL LIVE
SP OF CURING SNEA LTURE K PEA K
A true renaissance person, Grammy Award-winner Ms Lauryn Hill took the world by storm with The Fugees in the nineties, with hit tracks Killing Me Softly and Ready or Not. She followed this with the 10 times Grammy-nominated album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill that powerfully transformed how the world envisioned the possibilities of hip-hop and genre, as well as the contributions of women in the form and contemporary music, period. After a break from music that included motherhood, Lauryn Hill is back on the scene in full force celebrating the extended 20th anniversary of that phenomenal hit album, the seminal work which included hit singles Doo Wop (That Thing), Ex-Factor and Everything Is Everything. Her free-form and eclectic sound blends elements of classic soul and rock with modern day hip-hop in the box-breaking and restrictive rule-defying tradition of jazz. This promises to be a super, electrifying evening at Bahrain Bay Open Air Theatre which is open to those aged eight years and above. Visit www.springofculture.org for ticket sales.
