New Zeeland’s own Estère will be joining international artists including Pitch Black Afro, Mafikizolo, Pablo Nouvelle, SKA, Songhoy Blues and Native Young at the this year’s MTN Bushfire taking place between 27 – 29 May in Swaziland.
Acclaim Magazine describes Estère as having a “velvet smooth voice that has already drawn comparisons with Erykah Badu with the charm of Lianne La Havas.”
Her mixture of bass, synth, drums, guitar, vocal harmonies, keyboard, whistles, claps, kazoo and desk tapping has been dubbed Electric Blue Witch Hop. She has performed at festivals across the globe and opened for artists including Morcheeba, Baths, Ikonika and KT Tunstal.
MTN Bushfire is Swaziland’s internationally acclaimed music & arts festival that celebrates creative expression whilst promoting social responsibility, stimulating the economy and drawing talent and tourists from across Africa and around the world.
It was lauded by CNN as one of the 7 African music festivals you really have to see, and most recently named as BBC’s Top African Festival.
