I know that I’m lucky, because I can invite someone over to my apartment, have a great conversation, record it and call it WORK. That’s what I got to do when I interviewed my dear friend SATE.
SATE, aka Saidah Baba Talibah, was born to be a musician. Raised in an extremely musical family and blessed with a voice that would make Mariah jealous, Talibah has been carefully cultivating her musical identity, an activity that has culminated into the creation of SATE. Stage name, persona, super heroine identity – call it what you will; the creation of SATE has been Talibah’s rebirth. Nothng exemplifies that more than her latest musical releases, the Red, Black, & Blue EPs, created through the ultimate in artist/fan collaboration, Pledge Music. Fans are currently voting on their favorite songs, from which SATE’s debut full length album will be born. I, like SATE’s many fans, cannot wait for that to happen.
There’s a reason why I’m a huge fan of SATE’s, and that’s her music. Part funk, part R&B with a hefty helping of sweaty, sexy, superb rock and roll – and that’s exactly what you get with those aforementioned EPs. Need convincing? Take a listen to one of the dirtiest, sexiest and rockinest tracks you’ll ever here, “What did I Do” from the Black EP.
Have I got your attention yet? Good. Now sit back, relax and join me in watching one of my favourite interviews ever. We laughed, we cried, we cursed and we bonded. Get to know SATE, and watch the interview below:
