The Flavor of Chocolat
Musician and singer Tamar-kali curates a night of bawdy, sexy, cabaret-inspired entertainment called “Cabaret Chocolat” on Saturday, November 21, 2009. With mentalist/ illusionist Marco the Magician as the emcee, the night will also feature a pre-show performance by accordionist/organist Mojo Lazarus, burlesque by The Maine Attraction, and dance performance artist Monstah Black.
Blackadelic Pop spoke with Tamar to get the nitty gritty flavor of Cabaret Chocolat: "I noticed in the last couple of years, there has been an interest and curiosity in early 20th Century entertainment. Whether its swing music or vaudeville, these events are often going on in the city. Yet, rarely are people of color involved. I wanted to do an event that bought together various kinds of performance beyond what I usually do. Like the Harlem Renaissance or Andy Warhol's Factory, I'm striving to do something special where various types of artists can meet, mingle and have fun. Folks are so much on their grind these days, we often forget what its like to be part of an artistic community. With Cabaret Chocloat, hopefully we can create an event that will not only be a great show, but will also get artists of different genres to meet and dialogue with one another. Believe me, this event will be both a spectacle and a scene."
