As many of you know, over at Bold As Love, I’m chronicling what I see as the cultural shift that, I believe, is making it possible for Black rock to move from the fringes towards the mainstream. To further support this, I wanted to make sure that I’m sharing music from this growing niche.
So, this week’s offering is "Mona Lisa" by Shrine for the Black Madonna. The song was taken from the "Paradise" portion of their double album "Paradise/Inferno". You may recall them from the crowdsourced list of the Best Black rock releases of 2007, since several people, including Vernon Reid, shouted them out. Enjoy!
