The collective is, Brazilian lyricist and artist Manu Lafer, drummer Omar Hakim, percussionist Bashiri Johnson, bassist Derrick Murdock and vocalists Darryl Tookes, Cindy Mizelle and Angela Clemmons. The project joyfully combines Albert’s infectious old school R&B/funk and contemporary urban jazz vibes with Lafer’s fertile imaginative and whimsical lyrics, Run N’ Fly creates a quirky yet powerful homage to some of our greatest feminine characters while transcending the trappings of being a strictly a “Brazilian” band, highlighting the depth of the infusion of American pop, jazz and soul into their culture.
