Idra Kayne Concert
Idra Kayne is definitely the revelation of our country’s (Greece!) soul funk scene. With a wonderfully complete voice, and with such a lively stage presence, the stage is simply made for her.
Idra was born and raised in Athens by a Ugandan father and a Greek mother, she has had 15 years of studies in dance (classical ballet and jazz), in vocals (with Neni Zappa, while in 2007 she graduated from the Vocal Art Academy), with singing, composition, orchestration and beatbox seminars in Rotterdam, within the framework of the European Roots & Routes Association.
She has been involved in music professionally since 2000, when she started her live performances in important music scenes in Athens and Thessaloniki.
In 2007, she appeared as a support act for DeLa Soul at the “Meet The Streets” festival as part of the European program “Roots & Routes” and from 2008 until today she has collaborated with many artists on record and in live performances.
She has also been involved in theater since 2011 with participation in the operetta “Daughter of the Storm” (2011), in the musicals RENT (2012), FAME (2013), ANNIE (2013), PRISCILLA (2014), SWEET CHARITY (2016). She has also appeared in several television series, by Giorgos Kapoutzidis “National Greece”, in the series “Mother’s cake” by Riga-Apostolos and in the film by Argyris Papadimitropoulos “Monday”.
“Her voice has an impressive depth, the ideal soul grotto of a ‘black’ diva. She could be one of the girls in Dreamgirls, Bill Condon’s film that brilliantly depicts the music industry of the 60s in America.”
