Here is a performer whose gloriously down-to-earth, sassy performance is spellbinding: a no-nonsense treasure at a time when it's easy to despair about lack of substance and character
In the Big Easy, she's hotter than a Mink in Malta and, alongside the kingpins of the New Orleans jazz revival – The Little Big Horns – they kick up such a stompin' storm that everyone joins in to shake and shimmy.
Meschiya (pronounced Ma-shee-ya) enjoyed a more colourful start than most. In 2000, she had joined a Circus troupe that blended traditional big tent arts with modern sideshow shocks, and honed her performance skills eating glass and insects...and fire dancing.
In 2007, Meschiya stepped out to front The Loose Marbles on the French Quarter's Royal Street, and joined by jazz dancers Chance Bushman and Amy Johnson, they set the town a-boppin'.
She teamed up for a while with singer Erika Lewis, formed The Magnolia Beacon, and they hit the road to appear in clubs from New York to Berlin, France and Latvia.
Once back home in New Orleans, Meschiya formed The Little Big Horns in 2009 and, saving busking pennies from the street, went on to produce their debut album, Lucky Devil to widespread national acclaim.

The New Yorker said:
"She rocks back on her heels, lifts her chest and opens her throat like an air-raid siren to croon in a thrilling, pre-microphone style that is easily audible above the band - no small feat. From the deep blues of Send Me to the 'Lectric Chair, to the swinging On a Coconut Island, Lake can make you feel by turns as though you were sitting around a campfire in a railroad yard or drinking in a Budapest night club, Circa 1938."
