Me’Shell is my Girl!

Thank you so much for posting this. I saw her in what may have been her first gig in London around 1991 or 2 when “Steppin to the Projects” was playing on the radio. This was in my serious record buying, trying to exercise black nationalism in my little bit of market choice freedom days. She completely blew me away with the totality of her performance — I had just never SEEN a one woman band on bass, drums, the whole thing and it was like Oh No this sister is too serious. I think they had an outfit called the Watermelon Society (hope I’m not mixing that up with someone else.)

Over the years listening to whatever comes my way here in Jamaica, it’s clear that the world is scared of a sister with that much ability. We like women to sing, maybe DJ a little and look pretty. We don’t want them to take us to to disturbing places, we definitly don’t want them lesbian, and it has occurred to me over the years that she is just too talented for the music world to contend with. I am disappointed in us, collectively, for not standing up for this sister more often, more deeply and loving the artist that she is.

My respect, Kalamu, as always
