Buckwild, beaming and disarmingly vulnerable, Mehdi Cayenne is a punk-funk crooner like no other. He's been developing his intense and luminous approach over four albums so far - earning awards and rave reviews here and abroad. With thousands of shows under his belt, from kindergarten gymnasiums to state prisons all the way to world-class festivals and 4000-seater venues, he`s paid dues all over Canada, as well as in France, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Luxembourg, and Armenia. His latest LP "Radio Batata" was co-produced with Olivier Fairfield (Fet Nat), Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, Colin Stetson), and Nico Quéré (Arctic Monkeys, Nick Cave); Mehdi has also opened for a wide variety of artists, from US Girls and Safia Nolin, Sam Roberts Band to Saul Williams, Imarhan to a Tribe Called Red. Dressed in black but radiating generosity, Mehdi will come back to Sudbury to unveil a dancing maelstrom of new songs this summer, mixing dazzling alt-pop with diaspora blues, masterfully delivered with precise and mind-blowing stage presence. Northern Lights audiences will be among the very first to discover these infectious and atypical songs - all taken from a new album to be released in the fall of 2023. Bring your dancing shoes, and welcome to the Cayenne Club!
