The ten-time Grammy Award-nominated artist is set to bring her eclectic set to Dublin on May 29.
As part of their ongoing Perspectives series, the National Concert Hall is welcoming funk, soul and hip-hop artist Meshell Ndegéocello to their stage next month, for her first ever Irish performance.
The ten-time Grammy Award nominee, who has worked the likes of Madonna, Chaka Khan, Basement Jaxx, Sinead O'Connor, Pat Metheny, DJ Premier and many more, is often credited with starting neo-soul music. Her most recent album, Ventriloquism, containing shape-shifting interpretations of soul and R&B classics, has been met with universal acclaim.
In a review of Cookie: The Anthropological Mix Tape, her fourth album, Hot Press described Ndegéocello as "a real free radical, a maverick music maker and cultural voice whose genius is to challenge her listeners on every level."
From her 1993 debut Plantation Lullabies through to her latest release, Ndegéocello has built a consistent body of work which embraces jazz, R&B, rock and hip hop.
Tickets for Ndegéocello's performance on Wednesday, May 29, are on sale now. See the National Concert Hall's website for more information.
