Bella Kalolo Announces The Time and Space National Tour and Free Download

09 September 2013 - 0 Comments

Fresh from touring the USA with Aaradhna, J Boog and Katchafire, tireless soul sister Bella Kalolo celebrates the imminent release of her Time and Space EP by announcing a 19-date Time and Space National Tour and offering fans a free download of her cover of Cheryl Lynn’s classic Got To Be Real.

Named Pacific Music Awards 2012 Best Pacific Artist, Bella Kalolo has been handpicked to work with and support artists as diverse as Mos Def, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Dave Dobbyn, Hollie Smith and the NZSO. Her reputation as one of NZ’s most entertaining performers has earned her spots at Glastonbury, City Of London Festival and closer to home; Parachute Festival and the huge Waitangi Day celebrations at Flatbush, Manukau. Now, in association with Arts on Tour NZ, the gifted entertainer of Samoan, Tongan and Maori (Ngati Porou) descent is taking her band on tour to all corners of the country in support of her Time and Space EP.

And a Bella Kalolo show is not to be missed…

With the live and super-tight accompaniment of the band she calls the Soul Symphony, she comes across like one of JamesBrown’s funky divas. It really might be some lost vinyl nugget from the 70s, capturing that feeling with as much authenticity as a retro-soulster like Sharon Jones.” Nick Bollinger Radio New Zealand Review

Espousing a mixture of Aretha Franklin/Jill Scott redolent soul (both classical and modern, yet with a pacific twist) and some rousing stand-up comedy, interspersed with touchingly personal emotional tales, Kalolo ripped through sequences of songs… and threw a few tasty covers into the mix - Martyn Pepperell

As a preview to the velvety smooth and often explosive soul fans can expect from the Time and Space EP (out Sept. 27th) and tour, Bella Kalolo hasoffered fans a free download of ‘Got To Be Real’. Download ithere.
