Moonlight Benjamin

Nicknamed “The Caribbean Patti Smith” by The Guardian (UK), Moonlight Benjamin plays a powerful and original music blending Caribbean voodoo melodies and a 70s blues rock inspired by Dr. John, the Black Keys or The White Stripes …

The encounter between Moonlight’s powerful and rebellious voice, and the tension of saturated guitars, turns the voodoo trance into a new and explosive style.

After “Siltane” album released in 2018, the singeress and real voodoo priestess continued her journey through Caribbean blues rock will another album release, “Simido”, in 2020.

Between 2018 and 2021, she’s been named by Martin Gore (Depeche Mode) as his 2020 favorite, been airplayed by Iggy Pop himself at the BBC, been featured on both Songlines and FRoots magazine’s cover (Uk), and reviewed by major media such as The Guardian (Uk), The Financial Times (Uk), The NY Times (US)…She also performed 65 gigs in 2019 in 15 countries, on major festivals or venues in Europe and North America.
