To make the importance of this concert announcement clear right at the beginning: Meshell Ndegeocello does not come to Berlin every day. If you believe the words of organiser J.A.W. Family (and we believe every word they say), it has been a whopping twelve years since the American singer gave a concert in Berlin, her birthplace by the way.

The concert will be performed by the then 55-year-old musician with Abraham Rounds (drums), Jebin Brun (keyboards), Chris Bruce (guitar), Kyle Miles (bass). Those who are still looking for excuses now, they don’t want to be convinced.
