Philadelphia-based M’Balia is a singer who approaches jazz standards with a “fiercely individualistic style and a generous dollop of gospel grounding”, and an “ace” songwriter with a caustic wit and piquant attitude born of lived experience.
While M’Balia performs in jazz combos, she also continues to perform as a solo singer-guitarist or as a duo with an additional guitarist or drummer.
Thom Loubet has played guitar with all sorts of crazy wonderful ensembles like Burnt Sugar, The Three Bean Stew Hip Hop Orchestra, and Nu Afrika. In 2002, along with 3 other musician friends, they formed The Citizens, an Avant-Rock band which has played the Basement Music Series twice before. He currently tours with the fantabulous Alice Smith and Tamar-Kali and recently was on the faculty at Bennington College.
