We adore Alecia. Last week, Alecia Chakour & The Osrah opened for ERIMAJ at Littlefield in Brooklyn and pretty much took the house down. The above video is their performance of “Ghost” – jazzy soul perfection.

Alecia has some seriously killing vocals, y’all – look out for this lady.

Below, stream the group’s EP that dropped late last year in case you missed it.

Video: Nik West – “Forbidden Fruit” Live

Los Angeles based Nik West might be known to some, but will likely be a new treat for many. The vocalist and bassist delivers a welcome return to the funky, jazzy brand of neo-soul a la Jill Scott, N’dambi, and Ledisi. On her debut album, Just In the Nik of Time (released February), she takes care to avoid the highly programmed and electronic production of contemporary R&B, instead striving for a fuller sound with live instrumentation. Taken a listen for yourself in the live video above for “Forbidden Fruit” – homegirl gets down!
