Afro-Kreol mu­si­cian Grace Barbe will be bring­ing her soul­ful tunes to this year’s Nin­ga­loo Whale Shark Fes­ti­val.

The WA-based Sey­chelles is­lan­der is renowned for her colour­ful, en­er­getic rhythms which fuse the sounds of African per­cus­sion, reg­gae, pop rock and Latin to­gether.

Barbe has been per­form­ing to au­di­ences around the State since the re­lease of her de­but al­bum Kreol Daugh­ter in 2009.

Since then, she has taken her mu­sic to fes­ti­vals around the globe and won the award for best World Act at the an­nual WAM awards for an im­pres­sive four years run­ning.

Guests are en­cour­aged to get their glad rags on for the gala fes­ti­val open­ing from 7pm and en­joy food, drinks and pool­side en­ter­tain­ment.

Tick­ets, avail­able for peo­ple over the age of 18, are $110 and in­clude food and five drinks.

The fes­ti­val sun­downer is a fam­ily event from 3pm and in­cludes lots of ac­tiv­i­ties and en­ter­tain­ment for all ages. Tick­ets are $5-$20 and will be avail­able only at the gate.

The Nin­ga­loo Whale Shark Fes­ti­val runs from Fri­day, May 26-Sun­day, May 28, and cel­e­brates the an­nual mi­gra­tion of the whale sharks along the Nin­ga­loo Coast and in­cludes a line-up of live mu­sic acts, en­ter­tain­ment, ac­tiv­i­ties, a fun run and much more.
