Tiana kicks off first European tour
As she looks to strengthen her already wide-ranging fan base, the Dancehall Duchess, Tiana will kick start her biggest series of shows to date as she is set to begin her first ever European tour on April 13.
After leaving the island Wednesday, Tiana is expected to perform her first show on the world's largest continent in Vienna, Austria. The show will feature other female deejays from around the world, including Lady Louise from Sweden, Aisha Bee from Hungary and DJ Mad Betty from Italy.
Other key dates on this highly anticipated tour include her April 27 show in Dortmund, Germany and The Hague, Netherlands on April 29, with two shows in Italy on May 4 in Rome and May 11 in Catanzaro.
Following her Euro-trip, the Dem a Bawl singer will head to Canada for a pair of shows and will also be in the island of St. Maarten for a show June 1st.
2013 has been all about gauging different audiences worldwide for Tiana, as evidenced by her collaboration with Canadian singer and songwriter, Jesse Giddings for the single, Back To Me. The pop-reggae single, influenced by Celine Dion's classic, It's All Coming Back To Me Now, was officially released via iTunes on April 2 and produced by veteran hit-maker, Kemar 'Flava' McGregor.
Additionally, the Duchess was named as Kenya's female artist of the year at the Kingston 10 Awards and has been releasing singles to maintain her relevance within the local scene with songs such as Bruk Pocket Bwoy and Freaky Man, a remix of Vybz Kartel's Freaky Gyal (Part 3).
