ABOUT THE ARTIST
Farrah Boulé is an award winning conceptual artist, singer-songwriter, storyteller, director and visionary. Farrah’s elegant, exotic look and the cool, tribal jazz-inflected approach of her low-keyed singing alongside her incredible quintet has garnered her considerable attention. She is the recent recipient of the Maya Angelou Harlem Renaissance Academy Award for her eclectic musical contributions. Her first album, Oval Metal (2008), garnered her the Underground Music Award for Best Female Artist. In 2011 she released her groundbreaking single, Shot Gun Wed-ding (produced by Kurser Fabrice) a raw, autobiographical narrative that boldly confronts various pernicious dynamics within her own family.
Farrah Boulé dances between the haze of art and music. She is hard to classify and impossible to forget, combining seemingly infinite avant-garde influences to craft multi-disciplinary expres-sions that hit the viewer’s senses all at once. This ultimately led her to create her own original genre, Tribal Hop, blending traditional & modern style drumming, while infusing bossa noir, french folk and jazz to create a global musical masterpiece. Farrah describes Tribal Hop as “A world avant-garde approach to music”.
Farrah is always ready to dazzle audiences of all backgrounds, headlining with a full band and sharing stages with her professional counterparts - Lenny Kravitz, Mos Def, Bilal, Black Thought, Sweden's Amel Larrieux, Robert Glasper, and many more.

She has also performed as a voice over artist for campaigns for Courvoisier Liquor. Farrah Boulé Burns is a divine, one of a kind talent that the world will soon discover and cherish!
