Every so often, a musical soul emerges from the underground with the inescapable talent, artistry and charisma that marks the arrival of a gathering storm.

At the tender age of two N'dambi demonstrated her powerful vocals by singing in her parent's church.

As the ninth of twelve children sired by Baptist ministers she was raised in a very strict household were only two genre of music were allowed- gospel and country and western.

In 1999, N'dambi delivered her debut solo CD Little Lost Girl Blues and since then she has capitulated the musical world with her two-disc set Tunin' Up & Cosignin', which focused more on a live and jazzy sound and A Weird Kind Of Wonderful, which contained funkier and more rock-influenced tracks.

N'dambi was signed to the re-activated Stax Records in 2006 joining the likes of Angie Stone, Lalah Hathaway, Soulive and Leon Ware.

Pink Elephant is her first release since joining Stax highlights her immense song writing skills with emotional purpose and rare honesty.

The striking vocalist, pianist and composer, known for her signature afro and fiery style, possesses the intuitive perception and powerful creativity that ensures an essential contribution to modern R&B and soul.

N'dambi performs at the Jazz Café, Parkway, Camden, for one night only on March 31.
