SXSW Video: Laura Mvula Performs at the Hype Hotel

posted by Marjana Jaidi on March 18, 2013

Austin, Texas -- Some of the best SXSW discoveries are made when an artist that you'd never heard of before blows you away. For me this year, it was Laura Mvula, who graduated from the Birmingham Conservatoire with a degree in composition. Her voice was utterly mesmerizing, and she was backed by a talented band that included a harp, cello, violin, bass, keyboard/trumpet, and drums. I could sing her praises all day, but don't take my word for it... check out a video of her performance below.
