The complete package, that’s the only way I can describe ABIR.  Opening for kiiara on the Fall 2018 tour, she blew me away.  This was one of those “I saw her when” moments which people love to tell when they are watching the artist receiving a music award. Hell, she’s already been named by Billboard as one of the “most exciting new voices”. The venue was the Theatre of the Living Arts located in one the most recognized artistic locations in Philadelphia, South Street. The historic building has seen many performers become huge, you can add another to the list. This night of electronica had a high note, and her name is ABIR.

Dressed like she just walked off a hip fashion show, her neon green fingernails glowed in the blue light as her peek-a-boo fishnet leggings rose up from under ripped jeans, with just a bikini top to expose her exquisite midriff (Is this a stage or a catwalk?).  She danced across the stage with a sultriness to match the beat her gorgeous hair was thrown about in every direction.  But wait there’s more… she has a voice which can break glass.  It’s so strong, and expressive it literally captivates you throughout each song.  Oh, and she’s personable!! Between songs, she told stories about her life journey so far, and thoughts behinds songs which connected with the audience. She closed the set with one of the summer’s biggest chart toppers, “Finest Hour”, a collaboration with Cash Cash which whipped the crowd into a frenzy.  I left the venue with just one constant reminder of ABIR’s performance, “that voice”.
