About Event

Hurricane Kristel will sweep into Addis Ababa soon!

From Gossip via Skunk Anansie and on to Prince with a tropical touch: Kristel is a disturbingly fascinating trio from Madagascar.

23 year old Christelle Ratri formed the pop-rock band Kristel in 2014 with guitarist Ben Kheli (her brother) and drummer Andry Sylvano (now her husband). A family affair of three post-punks with the electrifying female bass player at the helm.

The velvety, fiery timbre of the songstress and the texts lend Kristel's music an almost unsettling intensity. Her raucous voice has invited comparisons with a young Nina Hagen, but she also masters smoother, bluesy tones and takes the odd, welcome, flight to planet Bjork.

No need to speak the Malagasy language to understand the anger that the singer’s husky voice screams about the island despair, and the feminist and social claims she carries.
The trio delivers a fresh and efficient Rock music, tainted of punk and joyful trance, energetic funk riffs, saturated guitars and pop-electro tones.

Don’t miss their show!
Free entrance.
