NIANELL BACK AT SIBAYA (article first published : 2007-01-28)

Nianell, one of South Africa’s most exquisitely talented singers, will perform once again at Krakatoa at Sibaya Casino & Entertainment Kingdom on March 8 and 9.

Writing and composing her own music, Nianell released her third album Life’s Gift to great acclaim and her first two albums Who painted the moon? and Angel Tongue achieved Gold status in Southern Africa.

Falling outside the boundaries of mainstream pop or rock, Nianell's music is difficult to categorize but falls into the more general classification of adult contemporary. There are elements of folk, pop, R&B, country, classical and even Celtic, all fused into her own personal and unique style that has made her one of the most eclectic and exciting artists in the world of music today.

"Sometimes I don't add any lyrics to my melodies at all,” she says about her own interestingly strange and captivating musical language. “Instead I make certain sounds- it's a special language I call Angel Tongue. I do this because I feel that sometimes lyrics limit your interpretation of a song - they tell you how you should interpret the song. Angel Tongue allows listeners the freedom to interpret the music in whichever way they like."

Averaging in the region of one hundred live shows a year, Nianell’s bigger bookings have included the Royal Albert Hall (London); YOU Awards – 2005 (Carnival City); Miss SA 2004 (Sun City - Super Bowl), Klein Karoo Kunste Fees, 7 Wonder Tour with Patricia Lewis; Skouspel -Sun City Super Bowl, and United Stars with Diana Ross.

Nianell will perform at Krakatoa at Sibaya Casino & Entertainment Kingdom on March 8 and 9. Doors open at 20h00 and the performance begins at 21h00. Tickets R85 booked through Computicket or the Sibaya Box-Office on 031 580 5555.
