Sly Johnson & Nicholas Vella – Tribute to Marvin Gaye

Year: 2021
Director: Luc Riolon
Genre: Live Show


For 20 years, Sly Johnson, author, composer and performer of the Saïan Supa Crew, has been touring the French music scene with his soul, hip-hop and beat-box vocals.

He leaves his machines in the studio for a tribute concert to one of the leading voices of the famous Motown label, Marvin Gaye. The singer was killed by his father, a pastor, the day before his 45th birthday. 

In 1971, Marvin Gaye released a major record in the history of soul music “What’s Going On”.

Sly Johnson, accompanied by Nicholas Vella’s keyboard, makes the hot music of this album groove, a monument of soul and rhythm’n’blues. A true message of love delivered by Marvin Gaye, through the story of a Vietnam war veteran who returns home and sees only injustice, suffering and hatred.

The abrasive groove of Sly Johnson and Nicholas Vella is a rich music at the crossroads of hip-hop, funk and jazz.

Sly Johnson, a great regular of the stage, embarks with extreme generosity the audience in his musical universe, an irresistible performance.
