This week is a special double bill performance with Melanie Charles. Special guest Pink Siifu joins for the second half: two captivating, energetic forces curating the perfect blend of eclectic, sun-drenched jazz sounds.
Melanie Charles is a Brooklyn-born singer-songwriter, actress, and flutist of Haitian descent with creative fluidity spanning jazz, soul, experimental, and Haitian roots music. She is a graduate of The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and has worked with Jazz Giants; Herlin Riley, Ellis Marsalis, Pedrito Gonzales, ELEW, hip-hop legend Jean Grae, SZA, and Jussie Smollet of Fox’s EMPIRE, with appearances on Good Morning America and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. In April 2017, Charles collaborated with the Gorillaz on their latest album, “Humanz.” With all of these accolades under her belt, Charles, under the moniker D’flower, now embarks on a solo experience using Roland SPs, loop pedals, and the flute to create a Chaka Khan meets Badu-esque sonic collage, fusing RnB, jazz, samples, and Haitian folk songs. This project aims to blur the lines between social classes, cultures, genders, genres, and theories to create a world where opposing elements can co-exist.
Rapper and producer Pink Siifu’s mercurial talent for intersecting styles and culture can be compared to the manifestation of a tropical storm: an unchecked force of nature that hoovers up everything it encounters. He grabs from punk, free jazz, and noise music, and employs influences from Sun Ra, Bad Brains, and the late great Ras G.
This event is free and open to all. One not to be missed.
