Shenseea Brings Her Dragon Energy to Coachella

Shenseea Brings Her Dragon Energy to Coachella

BYPaper MagazineApr 18, 2023

Shenseea's first musical release of 2023, the new single "Curious," came out on April 13, just two days before the singer took the stage for her Coachella debut.

It was one of many dancehall/reggae tracks the singer performed for the big day, for which she wore a dragon-inspired look by Colombian designer Nicolas Martin Garcia, a former Roberto Cavalli designer who’s pursuing his own line.

The dragon motif is a recurrent thread in Shenseea's work, in particular its “fire" theme that she plays off heavily in her forthcoming album.

Below, Shenseea shares her Coachella photo diary with PAPER, giving a behind-the-scenes glimpse of her rehearsals, background dancers, stage outfit and performing routine.
