Soho Rising is our platform for championing the best emerging talents around, giving you the chance to see the stars of tomorrow first. Supported by Bowers & Wilkins, previous performers in our music series have included Mercury Prize winner Arlo Parks, Joy Crookes, Moses Boyd, RIMON, and Yendry. For our latest slew of Soho Rising shows, Moroccan singer-songwriter Manal brought her own personal blend of Maghreb hip-hop, Afropop, and Afrohouse to our European Houses this month. 

A two-time winner of ‘Best Female Artist, North Africa’ at the African Music Awards, Manal has garnered thousands of streams on Spotify – especially after the release of her highly anticipated debut album, 360, last year. With an upcoming performance at the 2022 World Cup’s opening ceremony, Manal is well on her way to becoming a global sensation. 

Having already performed at Soho House in Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Barcelona this month, Manal will be closing her European House tour with show at Soho House Istanbul this week.
