Annulation du Sónar Festival à São Paulo

Une semaine après l’annulation de la résidence en Argentine suite à une inflammation pouvant causer des dégâts irréversibles aux cordes vocales, le verdict vient de tomber et la participation de Björk au Sonar Festival à São Paulo vient d’être annulée.

Selon les docteurs, il est encore trop tôt pour envisager de chanter à nouveau. Voici le communiqué complet du festival prévu dans 15 jours :

Bjork’s cancellation statement

It is with great regret that Sonar Sao Paulo announce that Björk’s performance at this year’s event event will be cancelled.

After medical studies performed, Bjork’s specialist doctor advised her immediate rest of her voice due to an inflamed nodule. Following Björk having to cancel two shows in Argentina when this condition emerged, it is on doctors advice, too soon to try and sing again, as this could bring a permanent damage to her voice. Even though Björk wants to perform, she won’t be able to continue with the show.

We are very sorry about any inconvenience this might bring, and appreciate your understanding. We will release a statement to the media and upload it on our website in the next 48 hours to inform you of refund or exchange procedures.

We wish Björk a quick and full recovery to continue enjoying her talent soon.
