Festival International de Jazz de Montreal presents

Erykah Badu

Finally, the queen of R&B makes her first Festival visit! In a long-awaited performance, Erykah Badu takes over Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier to spellbind us with her sensual voice and jazz-and-soul-tinged melodies. Who can forget Baduizm (1997), the triple-platinum Grammy-winner that brought a breath of fresh air to the R&B scene at the time, and Mama’s Gun (2000), both now considered classics. And we may even be treated to her highly-anticipated upcoming release…
