On Saturday afternoon I moseyed on over to Silver Spring to check out the Can a Sista Rock a Mic finale concert. I wasn’t going to go at first but when I saw the promotional ads for the festival, I noticed a familiar face. It was my old high school friend, Jaquita Ta’ale! She was an actress for a long time but has since tranisitioned to music and is one half of a great group called Nola Darling. I’m not sure how to explain their sound, it’s kind of like, salt and pepa, j*davey, MIA, and a dash of Bob Marley.

Their name, btw is taking from the name of the main character in my favorite Spike Lee Movie, She’s Gotta Have It.

Check out their MySpace and you can also download their album at Rappers I Know
