L.atasha A.lcindor - [unknown]

L.atasha A.lcindor - Island

Celebrating fifteen years as a retreat and incubator for the arts, Artscape Gibraltar Point decided to throw itself a big party, a day of music and secular blessings. Rain early on kept the crowds away somewhat, but it turned into a fairly pleasant day, with music in the backyard tent going ahead from late afternoon to late at night, when 88 Days of Fortune provided the vibes.

With a charismatic set that made her the night's de facto headliner, Latasha Alcindor brought some body-shaking warmth to the cool night air. Though called L.A. by trade, she's from NYC — and proud of her West Indies heritage, as her riddims proved. Her "Island" was a totally on point celebration for the evening, as was this brand new number that she tested out on the crowd.

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!

[L.A. will be performing when the 88 Days of Fortune crew celebrates their six-year anniversary with a party at Double Double Land on Friday, June 26th.]
