Amazing Grace lights up Pula
The “6th Dimension festival” kicked off in spectacular style this year with an eclectic mix of musical talent. Headlining the opening night was the formidable “Grace Jones” who celebrated her first time in Croatia with an unforgettable performance.
In the setting of Pula’s Roman amphitheatre, musician “Moses Boyd” began proceedings with a 45 minute set which delighted the growing crowd. The highly acclaimed electronic musician is the London born winner of the MOBO Awards 2015 and has collaborated with the likes of Four Tet, Floating Points and Sampha whilst leading his own outfits, The Exodus and Solo Exodus, infusing electronica, grime and jazz.

The jazz theme continued as The Kemaal Williams Experience bought their rendition of the debut album ‘Black Focus’ to life with a performance featuring original member Tom Driessler who delivered intricate jazz baselines. Brockley resident Mcnasty, accompanied keyboardist Kemaal Williams on drums to produce a full hour of seamless high-vibe electro-jazz -funk. As the anticipation grew, the curtain dropped allowing the Dimensions crew to create a bespoke 30 foot stage set designed specifically for Grace Jones.

Time for Grace Jones
The now packed arena quietened on the cusp of her arrival. With the opening bars of the classic hit ‘Night Clubbing’ filling the arena, the crowd erupted as the curtain raised to reveal the iconic Grace in all her full glory wearing a spectacular costume made complete by a golden mask hiding her universally recognisable features.
Grace Jones proceeded to lift the mask unveiling her striking beauty which has enabled her to achieve a hugely successful career as a model as well as a celebrated musician. With the show now well underway, the audience was entranced. The iconic singer showed her ability to take command of both the stage and her fans as she continued with high energy renditions of the self-penned ‘My Jamaican Guy’ from the 1982 album ‘Living My Life’ and an excellent cover of Roxy Music’s ‘Love Is A Drug’ which included an outstanding light show.
Throughout her show several costume changes took place, each as dramatic as the last showing that Grace Jones has true style that only comes with experience and natural talent and which sets her apart from so many.

By now the atmosphere was electric and the show was bought to a climax with the wonderful track ‘Slave To The Rhythm’. Grace choose to show off her hula hooping skills throughout the entire rendition, never failing to impress and surprise the audience with her varied and unusual talents.
