Jindai is a true child of the cosmos. Her otherworldliness stems from a hodge-podge of seemingly opposite forces. Her father is heralded playwright / film maker /Black Panther Jamal Joseph. Her mother Joyce Walker, a model, was the first Black woman to grace the cover of Seventeen magazine in 1972 – with an afro. On top of it all, Jindai is a graduate of Columbia University with a degree in Philosophy. And her godmother is Afeni Shakur.
All of these things and more make Jindai what she is. And then there is star dust. It was Sister Afeni that offered Jindai her first songwriting deal at the tender age of 12 years old. The Harlem native was a singer in I.M.P.A.C.T., a group of youth activist that are immersed in the arts. She’s already performed at the Apollo, the Oscars and even prisons. Her style as a producer/songwriter/singer is genre-bending at its finest as she blends a weighty themes of sex, the spiritual and intellectual over tracks that are rolled up into R&B,electronic and indie sounds? Jindai, as a cosmic entity, may just go supernova if all the galactic gas and dust continue to form in this way. AllHipHop’s Chuck Creekmur talked to the young singer in this thought-provoking conversation piece.
