About Black Merda

Southfield, MI

BLACK MERDA WAS THE FIRST, AFRICAN-AMERICAN (ALL BLACK) ROCK BAND, WHO WROTE, PERFORMED AND RECORDED THEIR OWN MUSIC DURING THE LATE 1960'S AND EARLY 70'S AND ARE REVERED AS CUTTING EDGE PIONEERS OF THEIR OWN UNIQUE BRAND OF PSYCHEDELIC ROCK. CONTAINING DIVERSE MUSICAL ELEMENTS, THEIR UNIQUE STYLE OF MUSIC HAS BEEN CALLED FUNK-ROCK, BLACK-ROCK, PSYCH-FUNK, FUNK, FOLK-ROCK, BLUES-ROCK, BLACK PSYCHEDELIC-FUNK AND A HOST OF OTHER NAMES AND IS HARD TO CATEGORIZE COMPLETELY, AS YOU CAN SEE BY SOME OF THE ADJECTIVES USED TO ATTEMPT TO DESCRIBE IT ABOVE!

ALTHOUGH THEIR RECORDINGS WEREN'T ADEQUATELY PROMOTED WHEN ORIGINALLY RELEASED BY CHESS RECORDS. THEIR SINGLE "CYNTHY-RUTH", ALBUMS "BLACK MERDA" AND "LONG BURN THE FIRE!" ARE HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER AND ARE CONSIDERED CULT CLASSICS BY A GROWING NUMBER OF INTERNATIONAL RECORD COLLECTORS AND A MUSHROOMING INTERNATIONAL FAN BASED CULT FOLLOWING.

Google "Black Merda" and you will see numerous websites selling Black Merda's classic albums and CDs as well as reviews and articles detailing the band's importance to the history of Black Rock, Funk Rock, Psychedelic Rock and Funk music in general.

AS A RESULT OF INCREASING MEDIA AND FAN INTEREREST IN THEM AND THIEIR MUSICAL LEGACY, BLACK MERDA IS CURRENTLY SEEKING NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL MANAGEMENT AND PROMOTION AS WAY OF KEEPING THIER MUSICAL LEGACY ON DISPLAY, LIVE BEFORE FANS WHO'VE NEVER SEEN THEM PERFORM AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC!
