Join a remarkable musical odyssey with South African vocalist NALEDI as she shares songs from her debut album, BATHO, in GBH's Fraser Performance Studio. NALEDI's soulful and spirited voice draws influences from jazz, storytelling, and her African heritage. Her music first took root in her "kraal," a South African homestead, and her training led her to the New England Conservatory. Her career took off after being named a 2019 Kennedy Center Artist in Residence and landing gigs at storied venues such as Jazz at Lincoln Center. NALEDI's performances are a full-bodied sonic journey driven by her endless artistic curiosity. Off the stage, she runs the Dreaming Girls Arts Foundation, which supports girls in the arts as they develop the critical skills to engage with social justice. Jared Bowen, Executive Arts Editor at GBH and host of The Culture Show, hosted the event.
