Lady Moon & The Eclipse
Lady Moon & The Eclipse is a multicultural six-piece collective based in Brooklyn, NY. Through soaring vocal textures and R&B/afrobeat-influenced rhythms, their music sheds light on social issues. With a marked emphasis on inclusivity and spiritual unity, Lady Moon & The Eclipse explores relevant topics through a unique tapestry of cultural perspectives.
“Lady Moon” is vocalist Ngonda Badila, whose name means “Moon” in Kikongo. The rest of the band serves as the “Sun” that bestows light upon her; during each stage performance the audience experiences a metaphorical “Eclipse.” Hence the name — Lady Moon & The Eclipse. The band is a true conglomeration of artists; when off stage, band members pursue diverse mediums ranging from dance to visual arts, youth education, to environmental science. Lady Moon & The Eclipse is currently working on a full length album, following the release of the debut EP, Believe in March 2016.
