As we all try to find ways to ease the anxiety and stress surrounding today’s pandemic, Erykah Badu aka Badulla Oblongata is stepping up to lead a guided meditation session on Saturday (May 2).
The beloved artist is teaming up with London-based NTS Radio to deliver a tranquil, singing bowl and drum-assisted sitting as part of NTS’s 24-hour, Jameson Whiskey-partnered event, Remote Utopias.
The takeover — which includes a festival-like lineup featuring the likes of singer Jorja Smith, producer Skrillex, grime artist Jme and actor Jonah Hill — will also serve as a fundraising event for The Global FoodBanking Network‘s mission of helping “nourish the world’s hungry through uniting and advancing food banks.”
In related news, Badu launched her own platform and live-streamed a 3-part “Quarantine Concert” series where fans experienced exclusive performances, chatted with fellow viewers, and copped one of a kind merch, ranging from crystal-based water bottles, oversized hoodies and more.
Tune in to Ms. Badu’s hour-long session tomorrow (May 2) at 5:25 pm EST on NTS.Live or on the NTS Radio mobile app. In the meantime, peep a teaser for Ms. Badu’s upcoming session above.
