Saidah Baba Talibah
Her mother is Canada’s “First Lady of the Blues,” Salome Bey. Her uncle is Andy Bey, arguably the finest jazz vocalist on the planet. Artistic brilliance is her birthright, but Toronto’s Saidah Baba Talibah isn’t one to rest on family laurels. Her singular sound, a scorching blend of rock, blues and raunchy soul, has taken her from Singapore to Brooklyn’s Afro Punk and shaped the killer album (S)cream, which bested more than 300 competitors to win the inaugural Soundclash Music Award.
I was stuck in traffic tonight. A miserable drive…until I found myself listening to Danny Michel covering Bowie’s Young Americans.
I found it on his website after some poking around. I’ll post a link to his music page. If you point to the first box, you’ll see a play list. Scroll down a bit…third from the bottom.
(I’d make it easier if I could but I can’t find it elsewhere on line.)
