The excellent Emilia Mitiku will be playing a free entry show at The Yardbird next Wednesday 6th February!

For Emilia Mitiku, there is one word to describe her new album, ‘I Belong To You‘: honest. This quality is more important to Emilia than it might be to other singers – the type, perhaps, who set their cap and stardom and stop at nothing to achieve it. Emilia had a taste of that world when, in 1999, as Emilia Rydberg, she had a worldwide hit with the single ‘Big Big World’, going on to sell more than 4.5m records.

Emilia, the daughter of a Swedish mother and the revered and pioneering Ethiopian singer, Teshome Mitiku, grew up immersed in the music of Etta, Ella, Eartha and Billie, and it was to these early loves that she knew she would one day return: it was only a matter of when.

Listen to ‘I Belong To You’ and you realise at once that this, for Emilia, is home. Infused with her love of classic jazz and soul, the 12 tracks balance melodic immediacy and lyrics that look, often unblinkingly, at the perils, delights and complexities of intimacy and romance.

EMILIA MITIKU PLAYS THE YARDBIRD BIRMINGHAM ON WED 6TH FEBRUARY 2013. ENTRY IS COMPLETELY FREE, MORE INFO HERE.
