Concert: India.Arie
Monday, 2003 November 3 - 12:27 am
While she might want to avoid the "neo-soul" label, India.Arie is certainly the new voice of soul today.

In a packed house at the Lincoln Theater in Raleigh, India.Arie put on a dazzling performance to an appreciative audience. Her incredible talent is made credible and accessible with her earnest, yet polished, stage presence.

It's clear how much she loves her own music, and that's something missing from a lot of performers today. Her music is infused with passion and power, and even cover songs like "Sailing" (Christopher Cross) and "True Colors" (Cyndi Lauper) seemed to gain new life with her performance.

India.Arie definitely evokes old-soul and gospel roots, but a sprinkling of modern jazz and pop influence makes for a truly fantastic new sound. It is easy to see how this might be the beginnings of the infusion of soul into modern pop music; this could easily mix with anything from hip-hop to trip-hop.

Concert rating: 4/5
