Priya Ragu made her stunning TV debut this weekend with a performance of ‘Lockdown’ (which was also playlisted on Radio 1 for 5 weeks) on ‘Later… with Jools Holland’. The performance added another landmark moment as Priya looks set to be one of the hottest breaking artists for 2022, ahead of the release of her debut album on Warner Records.
Next for Priya comes her debut European headline tour, which includes a sold-out London show at the Jazz Café. Plans are quickly taking shape for 2022 too. She again teams up with Jungle (who she recently supported in the UK) for their Europeantour which commences in January, plus has confirmed sets at Eurosonic, The Great Escape and Primavera.
With her unique, genre-blurring ‘Raguwavy’ sound and a voice that blends eloquence, majesty and attitude in equal measure, no-one sounds like Priya. Her boundary-pushing take on R&B and electro-pop is infused with sonic elements that reflect her South Asian background. As shown by her critically adored debut mixtape ‘damnshestamil’, it’s an approach that makes her a true global proposition. What’s more, the mixtape was created entirely organically, the result of Priya’s long-term creative collaboration with her producer and brother Japhna Gold.
