SOUND SPOT: N'DAMBI
SOUND SPOT is a segment that I will be using to give exposure to some of my favorite artists that deserve some exposure. For those that don't know her, I introduce you to N' Dambi. Born in Dallas, Texas to a singing family, N'Dambi was encouraged to sing and play piano at an early age. Her talents are multi-faceted; incorporating singing, songwriting and producing, as well as writing poetry and novels. A sultry storyteller whose rich voice resounds the energies of past soul sisters, N'Dambi is able to evoke the spiritual essence of R&B flawlessly and readily joins the company of Jill Scott, Angie Stone, D'Angelo and others that rekindle our relationship with soul music. N'Dambi started out by touring as a background vocalist for Erykah Badu. She played an essential role in Erykah's recording career over the years. Venturing out on a solo quest, N'Dambi launched her own record label, Cheeky-I Productions. In 1999, she releaseed her critically-acclaimed debuted album, "Little Girl Blues," which is one of my favorites. Her most recent album was a double album titled, "Tunin Up & Cosignin" that was released in 2001. N'Dambi's poetic lyrics, coupled with her uniquely divine vocal abilities captivate listeners into a hypnoitc montra of soulful and jazzy melodies. N'Dambi has a new album dropping in early 2006 titled, "A Weird Kinda Wonderful!" The upcoming release has been described as her best work to date, so make sure you check for it!

Great review, I love N'dambi & just got into her over the last month with Both Albums. For anyone felling ambitious, you can purchase "A Weird Kinda Wonderful!" online from CD Japan http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=DAKVIA-33 for about 19 bucks. Shipping is 2-4 weeks. I myself think I may have to get it now. Peace,
