Laura Mvula Brings Musical Refinement To Hype Hotel
  • TUESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2013

Given the Mardi Gras-like merry-go-round of BBQ, booze, bands, and general debauchery, the vibe at SXSW can understandably get a little overwhelming at times. This kind of sensory overload is why you make the trip to Texas of course, but every now and then it's nice to snag a breath and get your physical and mental bearings, so to speak. When a performance provides such a opportunity, it's even better. We saw it when Icelandic composer Olafur Arnalds played Baeble's Launch Pad event and again when British songwriter Laura Mvula took the stage at Hype Hotel to provide a wondrous, musical pause. Cooling off a sweaty capacity crowd with a fresh breeze of jazz, soul, folk, and classical numbers from her stunning debut, Sing To The Moon, Mvula's performance was a memorable moment of musical refinement SXSW desperately needed, and now it's classing up the site with this long awaited release of one of our favorite performances.
