Main Stage / Saturday, July 14 2012
Erykah Badu, the undisputed queen of R'n'B and Neosoul, will crown this year’s Main Stage with her performance on Saturday, July 14. A four-time Grammy winner, this inspiring American singer defined the pages of Soul music history with her outstanding voice, atypical styling and hits which include Love Of My Life, On & On, Bag Lady, Window Seat, Tyrone and Honey, and many more. From her debut, Baduizm, released in 1997, godine, to the latest album named New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh) from 2010, her musical opus has been woven through with African beats, American Blues, Jazz, and Funk. Rocket Juice and The Moon’s latest album featured Erykah Badu on their album only a few weeks ago, where she appeared as a guest vocalist. The band features prominent performers, such as Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz), Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Tony Allen. Last week, in an interview conducted by S2S Magazine, Erykah announced the release of two albums in 2012, which include her fourth solo project and a collaboration with her own band, The Cannabinoids!
