Jazzy R&B-Soul Artist Keltoum Drops Self-Titled EP (Stream)
Keltoum is a fast-emerging artist from France who is already being compared to leaders in her field like Sade, Jill Scott and Erykah Badu as her neo-soul and pop influences caress from all sides. An original composer and player Keltoum also brings to the table a unique French sensibility which demonstrates the sort of warmth felt by Janet Jackson or perhaps Alicia Keys at their most impassioned. The list of greats she could be compared to could go on but Keltoum herself has struck her own blend of jazz and smoky vocal which is hard not to melt away to.
Keltoum has released her self-titled EP and is picking up fans across the board including some distinguished influencers like Gilles Peterson among others at Jazz FM and beyond. Her live show is also on another level as the energy of her trio seem to get the best of her tantalizing subtle soul voice bringing emotion to all who see her play, such as those who attended Gilles’ Worldwide festival in Sète last year where she completely bowled over the crowd.
