Emmy the Great plays The Grand Social on October 7th 2018
Singer-songwriter Emmy the Great brings her show 'Destiny's Child: A story of Karma in New China' to the Grand Social on Sunday October 7th.
In the show, Emmy the Great recounts the story of a life-changing trip to Xiamen, southern China through music and performance. In 2017, Emmy visited the country of her grandparents and spent four weeks interviewing people and incorporating their stories into her new album. Her trip was part of a residency run by the British Council and the PRS Foundation.
Emmy the Great arrived in Gulangyu, a small pedestrian-only island off the coast Xiamen of the Fujian Province, and each day revealed an unexpected new facet of modern China. She spent her time speaking to the people of Xiamen in the hopes of building a picture of their city, one of the fastest growing cities in the world. She is joined on stage by Dfu, one of Xiamen's finest musicians and sound artists.
Tickets for her anticipated show are on sale now, and are available on ticketmaster.
