About this event

Much loved Irish RnB/Soul star Toshín is proud to present a very special one off tribute to one of her musical heroes; Nina Simone.

Toshín, lead by the powerful voice of Tosin Bankole, is vibrant 6-piece band who take their inspiration from a variety of music spanning from early Motown to modern soul/RnB artists such as Tank and the Bangas and Anderson .Paak.

Their exhilarating live shows go from chilled out, from the heartfelt soul of Aretha Franklin to all-out James Brown-esque funky goodness, and has seen them play all of Ireland’s top music festivals including Electric Picnic, Beyond the Pale, All Together Now. Toshín have also supported Macy Gray on her Irish Tour, the incredible true soul outfit Staple Jr Singers, Corrine Bailey Rae & Kurt Elling, as well as performing sold out headline shows in both Dublin’s Whelans and The Grand Social.
