Tanita Tikaram

Tue, 08. Nov 2011, 8 PM | Golden Eighties
Festsaal Messe Basel

«Over my Shoulder», «All I Need Is a Miracle», «Silent Running»: everyone has heard these light-hearted rock songs from the 80s that make you start humming when you hear them. The band behind the songs is not quite as well known: Mike & The Mechanics. For years, the legendary Genesis guitarist Mike Rutherford has lead them. The band’s low profile is typical for Rutherford, who was never a star in the tabloids, but a musician through and through, just like the British singer Tanita Tikaram, who delights audiences with peaceful songs. Her gently melancholic song «Twist in my Sobriety», which catapulted her onto the charts, remains unforgotten and this great artist offers so much more.
