Thursday Live Music at the Grimaldi Forum – Lass

Lass is a voice that clashes and shines like fireworks when he sings on electro, house, ragga, afropop productions… A voice that also heals, gently intoning celestial melodies. A voice of rare elegance. Lass reconciles the secular heritage of great African singers and the dazzling style of rappers. Senegalese by birth, he learned music at a very young age, watching Omar Pene or Ismael Lo perform in the Dakar club of Youssou Ndour.

The concert starts at 20:30 with DJ opening from 18:30 at the Grimaldi Forum, Indigo venue on Thursday, May 12. Free entry.
