WASO bring the dream pairing of soul/jazz/R&B duo Laura Mvula and Jose James to Perth Concert Hall for the Australian premiere of Gershwin Reimagined on Friday, June 7.

Conducted by Troy Miller, this reimagining of Gershwin’s songbook will showcase the melodies of the classics such as Embraceable You, Summertime (Porgy & Bess), I Got Rhythm and many more.

Bursting onto the UK mainstage in 2013, Laura Mvula is described as the Nina Simone of her generation. She’s received two Mercury Prize nominations, won the Ivor Novello Best Album and Mobo Awards, as well as receiving BRIT Awards nominations.

Jose James is often referred to as the jazz singer for the hip hop generation. His music combines jazz, soul, drum and bass, and spoken word.
