With a voice beyond her years, ukulele wielding Avi will be joined by a three-piece band during her 15-date tour. For the first time Avi will bring out the soothingly beautiful Malaysian Sape, a unique string instrument indigenous to her hometown of Borneo. Avi is itching to get back on tour and show off her live skills and perform her new songs.
