Taste of Soul LA 2015 is one of the most anticipated events of the city as 300,000 plus residents flood the Baldwin-Hills Crenshaw area to taste American Soul food as well as various foods from the Carribean, South America and Africa. There are numerous radio-sponsored musical stages where renowned R&B Singers & groups such as Joe Thomas, Monica, Angie Stone, Mint Condition and Gospel singer Deitrick Haddon perform. You will also encounter craft vendors as well as different companies advertising their products and services.
International celebrities from the area such as 90s female rap star Yo-Yo often come to support their community. Wolof Times staff including myself, Sunny Moore and Batani Khalfani were of course in attendance to enjoy the different festivities.
Joe Thomas headlined the festival and was the last act to perform to the delight of the numerous females fans enthralled by his smooth voice and sex-appeal.
Angie Thomas graced the audience with her soulful voice and inspiring conscious message backed by an array of sultry background singers.
Mint Condition displayed their range as vocalists and musicians to the 90s nostalgics.
Gospel singer Deitrick Haddon came in full-force with his massive choir backing him.
The iconic Lula Washington Dance Theatre is located on Crenshaw Boulevard and took advantage of the event to showcase its dance talents which performed R&B, Ballet, Cuban and African dance routines for the event goers.
The event had significant success and is a much needed financial boost to the local economy.
