Last night I was on my way home from a long hard day at the office…when 2 dudes got on the train and began to set up to play music. The first thing I thought was where are my headphones.
But to my pleasant surprise these dude were by far the best performers I have ever seen on the train. EVER.
Let me introduce you all to Mello Madness!

This is one the the many reasons I LOVE BROOKLYN...”Celebrate Brooklyn”.
All summer long they have free concerts for any and everyone.
This Saturday I went to see Les Nubians preform at Prospect Park. And let me tell you it was well worth being outside in what felt like 100 plus degrees that evening.
Les Nubians is an R&B Grammy-nominated duo composed of sisters Hélène and Célia Faussart from Paris, France. In 1985 the sisters moved with their parents to Chad. Seven years later, they returned to Bordeaux, France, and began singing a cappella, producing poetry slams in Bordeaux and Paris, and singing background vocals for various artists worldwide. The duo’s debut album Princesses Nubiennes was released by Virgin Records, France, in 1998.
They have become one of the most successful French-language musical groups in the U.S., best known for their Billboard R&B Single “Makeda” from their Grammy nominated album Princesses Nubiennes. Les Nubians were the 1999 Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards winners for Best New Artist, Group or Duo and received two NAACP Image Awards nominations in 2000.

The Soul Summit Music Festival is a weekly Sunday event that takes place in Fort Greene Park in Brooklyn on Sunday afternoons, 3 p.m. – 8 p.m. The Festival is always free and open to the public. The Festival showcases artist of various artistic backgrounds.
Over the past TEN years, the Festival has become an institution developing a loyal following of music fans that bring the hills of Fort Greene Park alive with families, food, dancing and community love. The festival provides the backdrop for access to music, networking opportunities and other outdoor activities. Over the years, Soul Summit Music festival has become one of the most anticipated outdoor events in New York City. The festival has successfully created a hub of activity in the immediate community and beyond with weekly visitors from all over the tri-state area and internationally.
This weekend they had an outdoor dance party at Ft. Greene Park in Brooklyn, NY. This event has been going on for over 10 years at the Ft. Greene Park, but over the last couple of years they have run into major opposition from the “new folks to the area”. Mind you this is event has been here for 10 years without incident. If they have there way Soul Summit will be no more.
Soul Summit draws people from all walks of life. The young and the old. Straight, gay and everything in between.
For those of you who would like to check it out, come on down to either Ft. Greene Park or out to Coney Island and get your dance on.
