Grace Jones is Jamaica’s most influential music export since Bob Marley: an idiosyncratic disco diva with reggae roots and transsexual appeal on the international club scene. Her elegant adaptation of Astor Piazzolla’s «Libertango» remains unforgettable. Cool, sexy and refined, Grace Jones is an icon of the eighties. She recently made a brilliant comeback with the highly praised album «Hurricane» and came to Basel with her own «Opening Act» Trybez and with a guarantee for a sizzling show oozing with glamour.
