Words in Motion: Mosadi Music
Shirlette Ammons and Mosadi Music @ The Pour House
I relished the opportunity to hear a full set of Mosadi Music, a live hip hop band featuring Raleigh poet/emcee Shirlette Ammons, at The Pour House last Thursday. The lineup included The Old Ceremony's Matt Brandau on bass, electric guitarist Chris Boerner and drummer Nick Baglio.
This funky tune had already caught my ear, when Chris turned out a nice guitar solo:
For Mosadi's encore, Elijah Vick aka Tyler Hipnosis came up to do a cameo on the mic:
Vick/Hipnosis produced Shirlette's debut single, "A Spring Anthem," which features Carlitta Durand and Median. For a limited time, you can buy "A Spring Anthem" cocktail at select area bars (Whiskey, Bowbarr, Zog's Pool, etc.) and get a free copy of the single.
UPCOMING LIVE GIGS for Mosadi include the free, June 4 opening concert at Raleigh's new amphitheatre THIS FRIDAY, and Saxapahaw on Saturday, June 12.
