Feminine flows abound @ tonight's Fertile Ground show (Sat. 11/14)

The connection between art and spirituality may not be as popular as it has been in previous eras (’60s folk and pychedelia, ’70s funk, ’90s neo-soul movement), but for Fertile Ground it's never been a passing fad. Easily the most ethereal soul-jazz band since Earth, Wind & Fire, Fertile Ground and dynamic lead singer Navasha Daya have been the "heavyweights of the underground" for over a decade. The Baltimore-based group is currently working on its fifth studio album.

Tonight they headline at the Shrine of the Black Madonna (7 p.m., 946 Ralph David Abernathy Blvd., 404-840-9927) in an appropriately-themed show featuring two other Atlanta-based Mother Earths, spoken-word artist Fhena and enlightened MC SaRoc. To get a taste, check out a video clip of Sa-Roc's performance at the recent Peter Tosh tribute below.
