Following her career showcase of original music at Reynolds Theater, the neo-soul legend Meshell Ndegeocello offers a cozier, funkier night of cover songs — “ventriloquism,” as she describes it — in Motorco Music Hall, an accommodating and casual venue to discover what inspires a singer who has inspired so many herself. With her intently focused singing and lyrical, propulsive bass-playing, Ndegeocello puts her indelible stamp on songs by the likes of Prince, Nina Simone, and Gil Scott-Heron. After expanding minds at Reynolds, Ndegeocello loosens hips at Motorco.
Meshell Ndegeocello is a co-presentation of Duke Performances and Motorco Music Hall.
