Grace Barbe coming to Byron Bay during east coast tour

SONGSTRESS Grace Barbe will be performing in Byron bay as part of her tour along the east coast.

She will visit Cafe Oska Byron Bay on Saturday night for a dinner performance.

Barbe, originally from the Seychelles, is a renowned musician.

Her voice is a remarkably powerful instrument and as a songwriter she has a rare and natural gift for rhythm and melody.

Barbe plays guitar and bass and sings in three languages (English, Kreol and French).

Her music is best described as World Music with tropical island rhythms - a mix of African, pop, salsa and reggae.

Barbe (pictured) has just released a new album, Welele, which represents a mature and definitive manifesto of her "Afro-Kreol" style. It is a colourful and energetic fusion of tropical island rhythms with African percussion, reggae, pop, rock and Latin flavours.

Her live performances are a joy with Barbe lighting up the stage with a vibrant and engaging presence that compels the audience to get up and dance.

Her band has been awarded "Best World Act" for an incredible five years running in her current home state of Western Australia.

Grace Barbe plays the Cafe Oska, 1 Carlyle St, Byron Bay, on Sunday.

Pre-booking required because of limited spaces. For bookings phone 0416 887 884.

Ticket of $30 includes a two-course Creole-theme dinner.
