Opening Elixir Festival, the Palestinian singer returns to Grand Junction with a unique fusion of poetic dream pop, jazz and Middle Eastern soul
Ruba’s voice encapsulates jazz elements, with her Middle Eastern roots and colourful harmonies complementing her dreamy style and take it to unique and distinctive places.
Ruba will perform songs from her albums Shamat and Risha, blending beautiful vocals with poetic lyrics, layered with colourful harmonies, live instruments, and electronica. Her lyrics tell riveting stories of femininity, vulnerability, and celebrate the human connection to nature and oneself.
You will have another chance to see Ruba Shamshoum in the forthcoming Olive Jar performance.
The evening is presented by Grand Junction in association with Arts Canteen as part of Elixir Festival 2024.
