NIGE HOOD & THE FOLK RAP BAND
With an extensive music catalog and seven years of grassroots promotion, NiGE HOOD has positioned himself among the premier rap artists from North Carolina. The world has been blessed with but a few artists with the ability to connect to people like NiGE HOOD. What makes NiGE HOOD stand out from the rest? It is his Art, his Music and his Message. At the same time he speaks slang to his listeners, NiGE HOOD blends philosophy, values and reality in his rhymes. With superb lyrical imagery and clarity, he is understood by all ages and social demographics.
North Carolina has been in the news this year for all of the wrong reasons. Activist/songwriter Lara Americo has been speaking -- and singing -- about this discrimination. Today, she’s releasing her first full-length album, She/They about her experiences as a transgender woman of color living in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Americo played all of the instruments on the album and recorded herself in her closet. She’s a self-taught musician who learned how to play the flute, mandolin, guitar, bass and drums. She’s played these instruments in venues along the East Coast and is hoping the release of her first album will showcase her talents and her message of equality and equity for all.
Americo has been the voice of the ACLU campaign and Change.org this summer, when House Bill 2 passed in the North Carolina General Assembly. She has been featured in The Washington Post, Rolling Stone, and on Democracy Now!
