St Germain + Adam Naas
LONDON Southbank Centre / Royal Festival Hall
A respected figure in the world of electronic music for the past two decades, a pioneer of the ‘French Touch’ and a creator of intelligent, sensual and original deep house, St Germain has always stood out.
Ludovic Navarre, aka St Germain has been showcasing his futuristic nous and love of roots music by funking up the 4/4 electronic world with a little blues and gospel since the early 90s.
His first album, Boulevard, was a stone-cold classic and his second, From Detroit to St Germain led to him being signed to Blue Note for the multi-platinum selling Tourist - a perfectly-formed melodic journey of eclectic and idiosyncratic deep house, mixing blues, latin percussion and, jazz.
St Germain, his eponymous fourth album, was released late last year to critical acclaim.

Fresh from supporting Gregory Porter in Paris, soulful French musician Adam Naas opens the show with his distinctive voice and sound. He will perform from his remarkable new self-titled EP (out now on Universal). It’s an emotional soulful outpouring from the heart, featuring plaintive piano chords and chilled stripped-back beats reminiscent of The XX and James Blake.
