Singer-songwriter, visual artist, and curator Yaya Bey performs original R&B music with her DC-based band. Bey’s music and curatorial work focuses on celebrating black women’s stories and empowering their voices. Her recent EP release, “The Many Alter-egos of Trill’eta Brown,” has been featured on Saint Heron, The Fader, and Essence. Widespread praise: “Bey’s calm confidence and artistic vision foreshadow that she’s a force to be reckoned with…” (Essence). The daughter of acclaimed hip hop artist Grand Daddy I.U., Bey’s artist-advocacy work is rooted in a strong legacy of hip hop music and culture.
Co-presented by Dupont Underground and Washington Performing Arts’ Mars Urban Arts Initiative, which is generously supported by Jacqueline Badger Mars and Mars, Incorporated.
