Donegal International Folk & Roots Weekend (11th to 14th July), presented by Earagail Arts Festival & The Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny
In 2018, 12 years after she began her world music artist career and in parallel with previous jazz and world music collaborations with Omar Sosa and Jacques Schwarz-Bart, Moonlight Benjamin released her third album, “Siltane” with jazz-rock guitarist and arranger Matthis Pascaud.
Focussing on a more electric sound, creating a powerful and original fusion between Caribbean voodoo and 70’s US blues rock; between her powerful and rebellious voice and the tension of saturated guitars, Moonlight’s music delivers voodoo trance in a new and explosive style!
“Benjamin sounds thrilling, thoughtful and, at times, downright spooky….like a Caribbean Patti Smith”
