Camilla’s love of fusing African and Western music has made her a unique voice on the international jazz circuit. She will be bringing her all-star band to Ireland for an unmissable 10 date tour mixing her hypnotic blend of afrofuturism, hip hop and jazz. She will be joined by Renato Paris (keys and vocals), Jihad Darwish (electric and double bass) and Rod Youngs (drums).

Venue Information - The National Opera House

The state-of-the-art building was opened in 2008  as a fitting home for the award-winning Wexford Festival Opera, as well as being built as an all-year-round multi-disciplinary performance art-form theatre. It has recently been granted further official recognition by being designated Ireland's National Opera House by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, announced at the start of the 63rd Wexford Festival Opera, in October of 2014, by the Minister for Arts Heather Humphreys.
