Lady J Griot aka Jacquie Maddix is an educator and historian who uses live blues music and roots history to present a unique aspect of the blues. KFAI's Lady J, along with her award winning band, Lady J Griot & Her Root Doctors, has performed at venues around Minnesota spreading the gospel of the blues. In the style of a female tribal shaman and orator, Lady J tells the history of the lyrics of the blues, and shows how this venerable music is a remnant from ancient African spirit worship. Blues is the root sound of R & B, soul, funk and jazz music, but did you know that the blues has a root sound too? The sound of the blues is the sound of the tribal medicine wo/man or witch doctor lowering the barrier between the material world and the world of Spirit. That's why the blues appeals to so many, regardless of age, cultural background or language. Blues is the sound in between all differences. Blues is the sound of the SOUL. Music is the connecting piece that bridges all divides.
Lady J is a veteran performer, radio & television broadcaster, writer, emcee, entertainer and inspirational speaker. She truly believes in the "magic of the blues" because the blues has transformed her life. Let her share her blues ministry with you!
