ABOUT THE SERIES
Lineage: Black Music Series is a live music series held monthly at Pimento Jamaican Kitchen. The series seeks to honor the Black Heritage of several American musical forms, hold space for Black artists, and make this music more widely accessible. Previous nights of the series have featured Babatunde Lea, Mankwe Ndosi, and Davu Seru, and Lila Ammons Jazz Group.
The October night of the series features the talents of Lifeforce and Kashimana.
The series is a project by Julian Manzara with support from The Cedar Cultural Center and the Cedar Artist Collective.
The progressive jazz group, LIFEFORCE, led by drummer/composer, Kenne Thomas brings the energy of contemporary jazz.
Kashimana is a singer-songwriter with a rich soulful blues voice that soars through her original pop acoustic compositions. Along with her distinctive voice, Kashimana’s stage presence pulls you in and leaves you in a warm and fuzzy thrall that’s hard to shake. Her songs are simple, catchy, and paint compelling stories of her experiences in Africa, Europe and America. Kashimana’s rich soulful voice is like the mellow voice of Sade mixed with the raw attitude of Tina Turner and her songs show you where her heart beats
