The Top 10 artists I would like to see at Tusker Lite Experience

Image
Tusker Lite have been doing a fabulous job in bringing soul and R&B acts to town. Artists some of us never imagined we would see perform live have been coming to perform for the past year or so. artists like Joe ThomasDonnell Jones,Vivian Green and of course Erykah Badu (who has been the best so far in this writers opinion.) Some artists performances have been great (Ms.Badu), some have been so-so and some have been bad. But this is what it's all about, going to see if your favourite artist is just as good as we have seen on TV,radio,internet etc. So anyway all this is thanks to Tusker Lite, and whoever thought up this event deserves a pat on the back. Anyway, I know we all have our dream artists that we would like to see perform. So, I am going to make my list of Top artists that I would love to see perform. This list is NOT strictly R&B/soul but most of it is. The list is in order of preference. So here goes..

1. Sade

Video: Where is R&B headed?

Image
If you know me, you'll know that I've never given up on R&B/Soul. When everyone else has jumped on the Techno/dance train and left the R&B horse, I still continue to believe and support. There are just so many good and exciting(experimental?) sounds that are happening on that scene. All I can say is that radio does absolutely nothing for me nowadays in terms of music discovery and appreciation. This is not to say the traditional sounding R&B doesn't still exist, but it now exists alongside many emerging forms and sounds of the genre. (P.S I'm not saying techno/dance era is bad, but it doesn't mean the R&B genre is dead.)
