Fresh Black Girls: Cindy Blackman!

20 June 2007 No Comment

If you had cable in 1994 you saw Lenny Kravitz’s “Are You Gonna Go My Way” video, a song that was so popular that your parents kept insisting that it was a remake. This was back when Lenny had dreads and didn’t irritate me as much, what with the whole Nicole Kidman fiasco and the media focus on his buns. Cindy Blackman, that lady drummer in the video with the huge afro and shades, was so freakin’ fresh. She’s actually put out numerous jazz solo albums and played with musicians such as Cassandra Wilson and Pharoah Sanders (he wrote and performs the song that I was named after). I would try to get my hair to look like that everyday if there were no such thing as humidity. And she’s a black female drummer? This chick is dope in my book.

So what do you think? Please be respectful to other readers!
