Lady Moon & The Eclipse

Led by Ngonda Badila (whose name means ‘moon’ in Congolese), Lady Moon & The Eclipse are a multicultural collective blending soaring vocal textures with R&B/afrobeat-influenced rhythms to create inspirational music with an emphasis on inclusivity and spiritual unity.
Well know for their spectacular performances with compelling dance moves, galactic projection art, and ethereal handmade regalia designed and handmade by Lady Moon herself, there is no denying the entrancing beauty on this cosmic journey.

This concert by Lady Moon & The Eclipse is part of a weekend of events by Hudson’s first family of creativity. Don’t miss Young Paris’ (Milandou Badila) triumphant return to his hometown Friday, July 20 at 9pm, and the free performances of Spirit of the River on Friday, July 20; Saturday, July 21; and Sunday, July 22.
