Black Theatre Live


Heart and Soul

Tiger Bay presents

Heart and Soul is a night of comedic Cardiffian storytelling mixed with classic and contemporary soul music, R'n'B and Vocal Jazz.

Performed by Kyle Lima, a Cardiff born and bred singer, actor and writer, Heart and Soul explores a number of characters inspired by different generations of Kyle's family: from his grandfather, a merchant Navy seaman, who emigrated from the Cape Verde islands of the west of Africa to settle in Cardiff, to Kyle's older brother and sister and their heyday of being part of Cardiff's 90's soul, R'n'B and Garage scene. It's an uplifting night of live performance, celebrating the uniqueness and great heart of Cardiff.

Having trained at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and performed with companies such as Bristol Old Vic, Kneehigh Theatre and debuting at Wales Millennium Centre's Festival of Voice last year in Charlotte Church's 'The Last Mermaid', Kyle now wants to share his love of music, through live singing and storytelling in his own artistic creation. And what better place for it to debut than in the city that made him.
