MeShell NdegeOcello is one of the biggest stars you'll never hear on the radio. While not a staple on any commercial radio format, she's carved out a dedicated following with ground-breaking neo-soul records like Plantation Lullabies, Peace Beyond Passion, and Bitter. Your first listen to her music may startle you - her sound is a breathtaking funk-jazz fusion, layered with edgy songwriting, and a voice that could melt stones. Last week, NdegeoCello made a tour stop in Cleveland; her new record comes out June 1st. 90.3 WCPN's April Baer talks to this maverick artist about her world travels, her unapologetically political approach to songwriting, and her new CD, Cookie: the Anthropological Mix Tape.
