Settle in for a stunning and intimate art performance as anaiis reflects on Black motherhood, with a live quartet and choir.

anaiis is an artist, a mother and a sculptor of healing sounds whose work embodies the multitude of cultures and influences imparted by her widely travelled upbringing, spanning across Toulouse, Dublin, Dakar, Oakland and now London.

She has carved a space for herself exploring genre-defying and ethereal sounds upheld by her voice, which confers solace to the spirit.

Exploring her transition into motherhood through this intimate performance, she is joined by a string quartet and the Meltdownchoir, directed by Tawiah.

French-Senegalese singer, songwriter and producer anaiis is fast becoming a notable force in the worlds of music, fashion and art.

The now London-based artist has spent a lifetime moving around the globe soaking up a multitude of cultures and influences that bring an innovative and genre-defying style to her artistic endeavours.
