Imaani who came second at Eurovision 1998 for the United Kingdom, is back touring with “City Funk Orchestra”. Imaani was narrowly beaten by Dana International from Israel at the Birmingham Eurovision Contest of 1998. Imaani has recorded her own music since her Eurovision outing and has performed throughout Europe.

She will be the special guest of the City Funk Orchestra when they perform their funk and soul hits. The band was formed in 2010 when a number of London based musicians felt the soul and funk music played in many UK venues offered a tame representation of the genre. They decided to put the funk back into the music and they focus on playing at mainstream music venues.

Imaani begins her tour with City Funk Orchestra on May 3rd at Boom Boom Club, Sutton. For tickets visit feenstra.co.uk.

  1. There have been some great songs from the UK over the years (as well as some real dire entries). I’d have to say my favourite UK entry was Imaani – Where Are You. It would have been a worthy winner imo.
