Tomorrow night (March 7), versatile vocalist and consummate entertainer Shakura S’Aida hits the stage at St. Andrew’s with a combination of powerful original songs and unique takes on musical standards. She’s performed at festivals in Dubai, Europe, Australia, Rwanda and Russia, on the Legendary Blues Cruise, and in an orchestral concert entitled “Blues in G Minor: 4 Women,” featuring the music of Etta James, Billie Holiday and Nina Simone.
From her beginnings as the world music band Kaleefah’s lead singer, she has blown audiences away with her scorching vocal style. Tickets are $30, available online or at Munro’s or the Mac box office.
