Meshell Ndegeocello, a leading artist in the neo-soul movement and a 10-time Grammy nominee, will perform at Tamirane on Nov 26 as part of European tour promoting her new album “Weather.”
As a singer, songwriter, prolific composer, multi-instrumental band leader and stunning bassist, Ndegeocello has received critical acclaim throughout her 20-year music career. Receiving 10 Grammy nominations, she has been called one of the leading figures of the neo-soul movement.
A graduate from the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, she signed with Madonna’s label “Maverik Records” and released eight albums over 20 years.
Ndegeocello is back portraying her iconic style with her ninth release “Weather,” which will be available Nov. 8 from “Naïve” records. Once again, she continues to defy boundaries between jazz, soul, hip-hop and funk with her new material.
Hailing from Washington, D.C., and known for her activism, she has collaborated and performed with a catalogue of artists, including The Rolling Stones, Herbie Hancock, Prince, Alanis Morrisette, Madonna, Lenny Kravitz, George Clinton, Marcus Miller and many more. Her lyrics often tackle politics and sexism, a reflection of her activism. Ndegeocello is accompanied by a band of very talented musicians.
For the Nov. 26 concert, Ndegeocello will take bass, vocal, guitar and piano duties and will be accompanied by Jebin Bruni on keyboard, Chris Bruce on guitar and bass and Deantoni Parks on drums.
The show at Tamirane, which is part of the Garanti Jazz Green concerts series, will provide a chance for a lucky few to be the first to hear “Weather” in a live setting.
