(Vidya Vox)

YouTube singing sensation, Vidya Vox will unleash her larger than life personality and spectacular voice at Sibaya when she ventures to South Africa for the first time in September 2017. Her show at Sibaya Sun Park on September 2 is one of only two she will do while in the country.

“What a coup to have this hot and happening singing sensation performing on our stage. We have no doubt that her fans are going to flock to see her live in action,” says Janet Pillay, the PR and Promotions Manager at Sibaya.

Vidya Vox is brought to South Africa for the first time by ZedKay productions, Eventz4u and M2G Promotions. The fast rising star, an India-born American songstress, is well-known for her originally created mash-ups on YouTube. She sings in various languages including Bhojpuri, English, French, Hindi, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu.

Vox found unexpected success after uploading mash-ups of Bollywood and Western Pop music to YouTube in 2015. The songs, all produced by band mate Shankar Tucker, quickly gained recognition from the likes of Diplo, Major Lazer, and Hrithik Roshan, as well as publications including Cosmopolitan, Buzzfeed, The Hindu, and the Deccan Chronicle.

In only two years, Vox accumulated over 760,000 Facebook fans, 2.6-million YouTube subscribers, and 283-million views on YouTube. Her most popular mash-ups include Lean On and Jind Mahi for which she collaborated with several other musicians. She also released Kuttanadan Punjayile, a famous Kerala boat song, as a fusion along with an English song written by Shankar Tucker and herself which was shot in Kerala.

Vox’s most popular mash-up of Closer and Kabira featuring singer songwriter Casey Breves garnered over 2 million views in a day and was trending in India for a few weeks. In just two weeks, the video has over 13 million views. Vidya uploaded her first single Be Free in January 2017.

Vox continues to explore her musical journey with sold out concerts all over India, United States and Hong Kong with her next performances taking place in South Africa. For more information on Vidya go
