Soul singer Iyeoka: „I am very excited for my concert in Bulgaria”
„I want to be respected”. This is the meaning of the soul and jazz performer’s Iyeoka name in her native language esan, a Nigerian dialect. For a few years now in her project Lyrics For Literacy Iyeoka has been occupied with popularizing and preserving this language. Along with all her lectures and poetic performances, Iyeoka finds time and energy to embark on a spring-summer tour. Its Bulgarian stop is the beach of Bash bar, camping Gradina, Sozopol, on 3rd August, by invitation of Event Zone Agency. The first concert of Iyeoka on Bulgarian stage will be warmed up by the talented Dessy (Sentimental Swingers), who will prepare the crowd for a true summer party.
Iyeoka’s tour started in May in Athens, Greece, where the performer of Simply Falling was warmly welcomed by the audience. Except her concerts, her acoustic park sessions and radio performances won not only our neighbours’ respect, but a lot more – their hearts. Iyeoka continued her journey with a visit to Switzerland’s Afro-Pfingsten Festival, where the visitors could not only hear authentic African rhythms, but also feel Africa’s atmosphere and culture in the thematic markets and workshops.
Iyeoka’s next appearance is planned for her hometown – Boston. In Massachusetts, the state where she launched her career, the performer will present her biggest hits. After that she will go on to two stages in Germany, and in the heat of the summer Iyeoka will arrive in Bulgaria!
On the Black Sea coast near Sozopol, Iyeoka will sing in front of Bulgarian audience for the first time. Undoubtedly, this will be the hottest location of her tour! „I am very excited for my concert in Bulgaria”, said the charming singer, „it will not be the last time I’ll visit the country, I am sure”. She will be performing the songs of her third and most successful album Say Yes, as well as new tracks, with a band of five instrumentalists. The mix of salty sea water, cold drinks and some hot soul music won’t leave anyone unmoved by Iyeoka’s concert.
