Just off the back of her announcement that she will be touring North America in 2019, the Grammy Award Winning recording artist and technology innovator has added South Africa to her Mycelia World Tour.
Comprising of concerts, talks and workshops, the 40-city tour will be used as a platform to officially launch Mycelia’s ‘Creative Passport’ – realising a vision of the future which sees music makers connected through a verified and decentralised ecosystem, promoting artist-led, fair and sustainable operating practices.

Featuring template ‘smart contracts’, it enables quick and easy direct payments to simplify and democratise collaboration from meaningful commercial partnerships to creativity.
