A successful director of music videos for Katy Perry, Rihanna and many others, Yoann Lemoine aka Woodkid decided to have a crack at becoming a singer himself. A few years on, he’s taking world cities such as London, Paris and New York by storm with his cool melancholic voice, his mix of rousing, orchestral pop and hypnotic neo-folk and last but not least his spectacular visuals. ‘I want people to feel like heroes when they hear my music,’ Lemoine has explained. His brass section provides the heroic moments, underscored by the drums’ soaring tribal rhythms. For this concert, the Metropole Orchestra add their string section to create an experience greater than ever before.
