Senhit, the Italian-Eritrean singer-songwriter will perform her first London show at the Tabernacle on Thursday, February 2. Her most recent single “Something on my Mind” has made a splash on streaming services, and her first full-length album will be released later in 2017.
Senhit (pronounced ‘Sen-eet’) has worked with Brian Higgins (Xenomania) and Busbee (Katy Perry, Timbaland, P!nk) on the record and the results are unashamedly pure pop.
Senhit was born in Bologna, northern Italy to Eritrean parents. A true citizen of the world, as well as traveling frequently to Africa, Senhit has lived in Hamburg, Rome, New York and London. She made her musical debut on the stage in Germany, landing starring roles in blockbuster musicals including The Lion King, Rent, Hair and Fame, touring with the shows throughout Europe.
It was upon returning to Italy from one of these tours that Senhit was approached by the publishing company PANINI, who were searching for a star to launch them into the world of music. Shocked and flattened by the proposal to become a pop icon, Senhit accepted and has been working on developing her pop act and transitioning from stage superstar to pop star with a plethora of collaborators from around the world.
The journey has seen her performing her own material on stages around the world, including the Eurovision song contest in 2011 when she represented San Marino. She’s picked up some famous fans along the way, including Meryl Streep whom she met at a film festival in Rome and again on an Italian telethon. During her time in New York, Senhit also made a connection with Madonna and discussed her upcoming music project.
She has recently been making waves throughout Europe, with a collection of performances at Le Méridien Etoile’s Jazz Club in Paris and an expansive tour of Italy.
