CANCELED: This event has been canceled.

Multitalented Bahamian bassist and singer-songwriter Selah Poitier '15 is a new artist with an eclectic musical style influenced by fresh sounds from modern jazz, hip-hop fusion, neo-soul, R&B, and blues as well as her traditional Bahamian roots. She's also a poet, composer, actress, and activist. To her, music acts as a powerful tool for emotional healing, social change, spiritual transformation, and the exploration of the profound aspects of the human experience. Poitier uses her music not only to relate to listeners from all over the globe but also to reflect the times. Her influences and inspirations include Michael Jackson, Lauryn Hill, Nina Simone, Bob Marley, and Fela Kuti, among many others.
