Greetings I am Menkara "The High Priest of Universe Soul",

I currently reside in the High Desert of California City, California where I moved in order to keep it hot. I did my intensive and extensive studies of the soul in my hometown of Detroit,MI better known as "Motown".

My Music is simply my Lifeforce. I write and perform from the heart. My influences are everybody from Sam Cooke to Kurt Cobain, John Lennon to Aaron Copeland, Paul Robeson to Jimi Hendrix, Cee-lo, Outkast, Lauren, D'Angelo, Saadiq, Badu, Fertile Ground and beyond. I create my Music following the criteria of these "Masters". I believe in feeling, rhythm, melody, a good story, and the ability to tap into the collective subconscious of the target audience.

I make my music for everyone. It is "soul" music because that is the essence of it. Soul is my roots I grew up with Marvin, EWF, and Sly Stone. However it is universal in the experiences that I feel everyone can relate to. Mer Hetepu. (Love'n'Peace)

Old Skool "QueenE" posted over 30 days ago to Menkara

I like this melody and rhythm; a Pop singer would make this a big hit. Very nice groove and smooth soulful sound.

This is a number one hit with the right Singer, like Jaheim, Robin Thicke, Raheim DeVaugh, etc. etc.

hi M, thanks for the review of our tune SOUTHERN FRIED MEDLEY. It's from our TWISTED AMERICANA CD. And you are right it sure ain't country...never meant it to be. It's a medley of mostly old public domain tunes that we rewrote and rearranged.
