GRACE JONES - Zagreb, ŠRC Šalata - 04.07.2024

One of the most recognizable figures of the world music scene, Grace Jones has been defining music, fashion and art for almost four decades, and is an indispensable part of pop culture encyclopedias. A large independent open air concert in the center of Zagreb will be an opportunity to hear a cross-section of the career of this inimitable icon.

The author, singer, musician and model of Jamaican origin gave the world an opus that has already been included in music classics, from albums like “Warm Leatherette” and “Nightclubbing” to singles like “Private Life”, “Pull Up to the Bumper”, “I’ve Seen That Face Before” and “Slave to the Rhythm” with which she ravaged the music charts. From the modeling career she started in the 70s to the Studio 54 icon, film career in classics like “Vamp,” “Conan the Destroyer” or “A View to a Kill” and unforgettable performances, Grace Jones has remained known for her androgynous phenomenon that cemented her place in pop culture.

VH1 included her in the list of the 100 most important women in rock ‘n’ roll, while Billboard placed her among the 40 biggest names in club culture. She began as a muse for numerous photographers, and to this day numerous musicians and artists cite her as a role model, including Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Lorde, Róisín Murphy and Nile Rodgers. The documentary film “Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami” as well as the ironically named memoir “I’ll Never Write My Memoirs” give an intimate insight into the life of this great music and fashion icon.

She returned to the scene in 2008 with the notable album “Hurricane” and has not stopped performing since then, and is as original on stage as she was at the beginning of her career. Concerts that include original costumes, bursting with energy and provocation are part of great live performances where Grace once again proves that she is a timeless artist and living icon.
