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.
