Benjamin Drummond Emancipation Day Celebration Closing Concert: Carolyn Malachi
Sunday, April 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Grammy nominee, singer-songwriter and lifelong Washingtonian, Carolyn Malachi’s (her great-grandfather, John Malachi, was a local jazz legend) music has been called R&B-ish/Afro-futurist, and she’s been compared to Janelle Monae and Anita Baker. Her musical influences are eclectic to say the least: soul, jazz, blues, and Go-Go, in addition to R&B. Malachi won a 2011 Grammy nomination for best Urban/Alternative Performance for Orion from her album, Lions, Fires and Squares. Her songs have also been included in NPR’s “Heavy Rotation: 10 songs Public Radio Can’t Stop Playing.” To learn more about Carolyn Malachi and sample her music, visit www.carolynmalachi.com.
