The famous French singer Imany will grace Latvia and Lithuania with her enchanting presence this autumn, as she brings her “Voodoo Cello” show to the Baltics. This unique performance combines Imany's soulful vocals with the harmonic embrace of eight cellos to create a spellbinding musical journey. The show features Imany's renditions of chart-topping hits by artists such as Imagine Dragons, Madonna, Ed Sheeran, Elton John, and other global stars, all accompanied by the sublime resonance of the cello.
Imany's "Voodoo Cello" is a show that seamlessly intertwines the melodic prowess of the cello with iconic pop hits. Without any special effects, very naturally, Imany has artfully re-arranged well-known songs, infusing them with deep and resonant sounds that evoke intense emotional experiences. She appears on stage as a voodoo priestess, a character that is entirely fictional and inspired by different cultures. She uses repertoire to tell her story. Voodoo Cello is a mystical journey of a woman with magical powers. Her songs become the expression of her destiny, taking the audience from darkness to light, a journey that requires fighting personal demons. She creates her own dances and rituals to achieve inner peace and harmony.
With “Voodoo Cello”, Imany as a singer conjures up cello sounds full of warmth and rich with sparkling tones, breathing new life into iconic pop tunes spanning genres from Radiohead to Cat Stevens, including Donna Summer, Hozier, t.A.t.etc., and Bob Marley. Quite naturally, she taps into the combined magic of strings and her voice to enchant audiences and raise people's awareness of the power of women's unique energy.
Over the past decade, Imany's deep voice has captivated French audiences with a repertoire of soul, folk, and blues. From the triumph of her hit singles “Don't Be So Shy” and “You Will Never Know”, to the original soundtrack for the film “Sous les jupes des filles”, Imany has enjoyed global success. After a well-deserved break from several long international tours, Imany is now back on stage fusing the timbre of her voice with the warm acoustic embrace of a cello orchestra. This meeting promises to be unique and unforgettable experience, offering a deep, warm, rich, and emotionally expressive sound characterized by impressive dynamics and outstanding projection. It is truly a must-see and hear event!
