Laura Mvula, the stunning British singer, had a classical upbringing in Birmingham and used to play in a string trio. On her new album, out next week, she offers unashamed and unamplified orchestral backing from Holland’s Metropole Orkest.
On the second track, Make Me Lovely, there is 1:42 of pure orchestral sound before she begins to sing. How rare is that?
