The Garden Party @ Weeksville: Meshell Ndegeocello & Muhsinah

Last week's I went to The Garden Party at Weeksville and it was amazing! For those of you who don't know, Weeksville is one of the very first free African American communities established in the 19th century. It has been preserved over the years giving our people an opportunity to fresh fruit and vegetables at their farmers market, a way to access our historical roots with tours of the grounds, and cultural awareness thru music with weekly garden parties during the summer. 

 

I had the pleasure of seeing the legendary Meshell Ndegeocello live and UP CLOSE. People made fast friends and were spread out on blankets that were just about touching the stage. Before Ms. Ndegeocello would perform we were treated to the live electronic R&B of Muhsinah out of Washington D.C. I could hear the immense talent in Muhsinah's music but wasn't quite moved by her low energy stage show. It may have been the heat or the fact that her guitarists sound was compromised, but i'll give her another shot by downloading her next EP when it comes out. 

 

Upon stepping to the stage, Meshell Ndegeocello hypnotized the crowd immediately when she said "It's Brooklyn Baby...". She had them where she wanted them. Going from bass to to song with effortless interaction with the audience, her light shone bright over Weeksville that beautiful Saturday evening. Later, the small setting of the Garden Party allowed for an intimate Q&A session with Ms. Ndegeocello getting personal with the audience and graciously answering questions which you can see in the Society HAE video below. 

 

Check out the Meshell & Muhsinah at The Garden Party at Weeksville: 

 

 

 

Next week is the last Garden Party at Weeksville featuring Theophilus London and Phony Ppl. Make sure you bring a blanket and all that Brooklyn love to the show!
