I attended the most amazing show on Friday night at the Skirball Cultural Center (courtesy of Flavor Pill), as part of the Women Hold Up Half The Sky exhibition. 

Imagine a group of culturally diverse women, singing together in harmony, accompanied by a drummer, bass guitarist, saxophone player, and dancing to the beat of their own drums (literally)....that is Adaawe!

Providing a fusion of "rhythms, R&B/Pop vocals, arresting Gospel vocal harmonies, and funky original creations." The 7 women of Adaawe put on an incredible show! The energy of the entire room was alive, people were out of their seats dancing, swaying, and clapping along. The audience was as diverse as the women on stage, but the unity was tangible. I have never experienced anything like it.

Adaawe's new CD, Passage, is coming soon, but they had copies available for purchase at the show, thank goodness! I popped the CD in as soon as I got in the car, they're that good!

Check out their website to see when they will be coming to your neck of the woods!

I received tickets to see Adaawe free from Flavor Pill. I was not required to write a positive review. The views expressed are the opinion of Just Say I Told You So!
