)-- Award winning World music artist Grace Barbé won big on Thursday night at the Western Australia Music Industry Awards for the 4th time running, taking home the top prize for Best World Music artist of the year. Representing a broad spectrum of today's global independent music scene, the Nominees in the World music category were culled from thousands of submissions across Western Australia.
"Seychellois islander Grace Barbé is the real deal and we are very proud of her continued success especially with the Western Australia Music Awards," says AMG Chairman Mark S. Berry. "Grace's music reflects and celebrates the diverse and exotic cultural influences of her Indian Ocean heritage, intertwined with modern reggae, pop & soul. Tremendous influences that have helped her make her mark on her already distinct sound."
Grace Barbé has an international promotion & marketing arrangement with Deevel.com, a division of AMG based in Toronto, Canada and her catalog is distributed through Universal Music under the Attack Media Group banner.
Her new album out the 1st of November to overwhelming critical praise is "Welele." Guy Morel, Grace Barbés manager says, "We are delighted at the promotion and marketing efforts of Deevel internationally and that combined with her world tours being put together have yielded many growth opportunities for Grace's music. Her 4th time a bat for the WAM awards is especially rewarding."
Following the release of her debut album "Kreol Daughter" in 2009, Grace has performed at many of Australia's leading music festivals, including Byron Bay Bluesfest and Woodford Folk Festival. Internationally, Grace has performed at the WOMAD in New Zealand, Sakifo Festival in La Reunion, Reggae Donnsa in Mauritius and Le Carnivale International de Victoria in her native Seychelles.
Grace and her band "Afro-Kreol"(which now includes her younger sister, Joelle Barbé on drums) have been awarded "Best World Act" four years running now in her home state of Western Australia. Grace lights up the stage with an energetic and engaging presence. A talented singer/songwriter, Grace is at home on both guitar and bass whilst singing in three languages; English, Kreol & French.
