Waves Festival

Waves Festival is a festival dedicated to music and songs. On stage only few elements, some instruments and a lot of emotionality. Waves Festival prefers singers and guitar songwriters, bands that deconstruct their sound in favour of a reduced and essential sound and visual approach, making the audience live a unique experience.

In 1987 she released "Solitude Standing", No. 2 of the UK Album Chart, which contains the famous single "Luka".

Two years later it is the turn of "99.9F" °, an eclectic mix of folk, dance and industrial. In 1996 she released "Nine Objects of Desire", simple and essential.

After a seven-year silence, in 2014 she released "Tales from the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles", a wonderful collection of songs, a sound journey inspired by the material and spiritual world. Two years later it was the turn of "Lover, Beloved: Songs form an Evening with Carson McCullers", a tribute to the American writer Carson McCullers, a female figure who has always been an inspiration for the New York songwriter. Written by Suzanne Vega in collaboration with Duncan Sheik, the album is a beautiful collection of elegant folk-pop ballads.
