Vocalist Lydia Caesar at CFAC

Singer-song writer Lydia Caesar brought the crowd to its feet at CFAC

We’re not sure if the bass was too strong or it was the profound timbre of Lydia Caesar’s voice that caused The Community Folk Art Center to tremble on Friday. Her performance,¬†which was co-sponsored by WAER-FM 88, was the official kick-off for Syracuse University’s Black History Month festivities. The Queens, NY-native showed her range by singing a slow-moving musical love letter she calls “St. Louis,” then moved further into the set with the bouncy “Lottery.” She also sang several covers.

The crowd seemed to appreciate her repertoire and showered her with praise.

Caesar was backed up for the visit by Syracuse’s Brownskin band.

Lydia's new single "Through it all" will be released Feb. 10.
