Meshell Ndegeocello (US)- Sydney

Saturday 20 April 2019

American singer-songwriter, rapper, multi-instrumentalist and bassist, Meshell Ndegeocello is coming to Sydney! Over the past 25 years Meshell has received significant critical acclaim including 10 Grammy Award nominations and credit for helping spark the Neo-Soul movement.

Meshell’s music incorporates a wide variety of influences, including Funk, Soul, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Reggae and Rock and hit urban radio like a comet in 1993 with her debut ‘Plantation Lullabies’. Known for her emotional live performances, Meshell finds something of herself to express in every song she performs live, be that an original or a cover – that is her special gift.

‘Ventriloquism’ is the latest album from Meshell Ndegeocello, which has all the hallmarks of all of Ndegeocello’s work – it is lush and investigative, subversive and sublime. As always, she pays tribute to her diverse influences and in these 11 covers, you hear them layered over one another. This reimagining affords not just a new musical experience but also a comment on the narrow expectations of sounds and structures for black artists and black music which we cannot wait to see performed live in Sydney this April.
