ibis MUSIC We Are Open Celebrates Diversity and Inclusiveness

ibis, part of the Accor group has announced the global debut of “ibis MUSIC We Are Open”, a virtual voyage of ibis MUSIC featuring a roster of international headliners curated by Sony Music Entertainment as well as up-and-coming talents from all over the world identified in collaboration with Spotify.
Headlining the tour are Charlie Winston (France), Pabllo Vittar (Brazil), and Izzy Bizu (UK), who will all perform from ibis locations. They will take the ibis community along on their own personal journeys to discover talented up-and-coming artists. It will also allow the public to “virtually traverse” the globe through the lens of music and discover 12 vibrant destinations. For example, drag queen Pabblo Vittar has curated an impressive lineup and will share the work of the Goan rapper Sharlaine, the rapper Saudade from Spain and the talented duo Youth Novels from Poland. The journey will continue onwards to Australia, Germany and Morocco.
The performances will be broadcast virtually around the world via Instagram TV (@ibishotels), Facebook and YouTube. They will celebrate a theme of openness. “All ibis hotels share one common credo: to be open to all, wherever and whoever you are, which is why we named this tour ibis MUSIC We Are Open,” said Caroline Benard, Vice President, Eco Brands Experience, Accor.
“We are proud to share our love for travel and hospitality that continues despite the challenges presented to us this year. We hope this initiative will help the world re-connect through the extraordinary power of music – a universal language that knows no borders. More than ever, we believe that an open world is a better world,” she added.
“I’m super excited and thrilled to be a part of this year’s ibis MUSIC, joining a global journey with other artists from around the world and sharing a special and absolutely exclusive live performance of my songs. I have recorded these at one of my favourite scenic locations, overlooking the sea and horizon, in my hometown Goa, and have performed a choice selection of my acoustic songs alongside my band,” said Sharlaine from Goa, India.
