Christening 2007 with a powerful live vocal performance by legendary dance diva Ultra Naté. Her 13 year illustrious musical career has spawned 4 studio albums, collaborations with some of the biggest names in the business, as well as, big hit singles such as “Free”, "Scandal," "Rejoicing," "It's Over Now," "Show Me," "Joy", "New Kind of Medicine," "Found A Cure," "Divine Love," "Desire," "I Don't Understand It", the top 40 pop hit "If You Could Read My Mind" (with Amber and Jocelyn Enriquez) and "Twisted". Ultra is still making music and shaping this scene as a philanthropist,! business woman, DJ, club owner, record label owner and producer, so come down to the Melting Pot and help us give Ultra a warm New York welcome! The performance will begin promptly at 11pm followed by lovely and talented dancers Maija Garcia, Dawn Robinson and Shayla-Vie Jenkins who will challenge the audience to "Capture This", (speaking to the impossibility of capturing movement), the result is an afro-latin-funk dance performance by OrganicMagnetics; an urban folklore/ movement art collective committed to gathering artists of diverse media to engage in creative processes as pedagogy and to generate transformative experiences through live performance. [Choreography by Garcia, Costumes by Xadim. Photo credits: Levi Stolove.] Residents DJ Kervyn Mark and DJ Kamala will be spinning all sorts of Deep Soulful House, Classics and Global Beats. Eye-popping visual installations by Love Intelligence Group always inspire a spiritual connection to the music and the movement.
