Grammy nominated singer Carolyn Malachi (backed up by drummer Baba Don of The Last Poets) @ Mike Geffner Presents The Inspired Word, Thursday, April 14, 2011 @ One and One Bar/Restaurant, Nexus Lounge, Manhattan, NYC.
Songstress, musician, dancer, spoken word artist, philanthropist are just a few titles 2011 Grammy Nominee, Carolyn Malachi holds. She is a Washington DC native whose great grandfather happens to be legendary jazz pianist John Malachi. Her sound is a soothing genre-bending blend of jazz, pop, R&B, and spoken word. Her 2010 release of the "Lions, Fires & Squares" EP is composed of songs regarding relationships, love, and strength which bear influence of her recent tours in South Africa inspired by the South African artist Hip Hop Pantsula. The single "Orion" from the "Lions, Fires, & Squares" EP has earned Carolyn a 2011 Grammy Nominee for Best Urban Alternative Performance.
