Our Final Black Voice for the New Century in our month long series is the British singer from Birmingham, Laura Mvula. Her music is all about combining diverse influences. They range from her Caribbean background to her time spent studying composition at the Birmingham Conservatory.
She also has a unique way with vocal harmony stacking odd intervals together to great emotional effect with a nod to her time spent as the Director of more than one choir. Her debut album Sing to The Moon was long-listed for the Brit Awards last year. And this is only the start.
