The Downtown Hyattsville Arts Festival is next Saturday, can you feel the electricity in the air? It’s not just thunder! We know you’ll all love the live music we have planned, here’s a little more about each of the artists:
Cheick Hamala Diabate
La Salvadoreina, aka Cindy Yomaira Zavala born and raised in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. She grew up in the Little El Salvador that exists in DC, Maryland and Virginia. Both of her parents and family are from El Salvador. The love for her culture and the lack of representation inspired her to start writing music and create the SalvadoReinas fashion brand. La Salvadoreina will be performing at 2 pm.
Odd Mojo, aka Mahogany Pearson, entered the rap game as a teen in 2011.
Called “Hyattsville’s premiere new Orleans style street band”, the Wild Anacostias are homegrown favorites, with a line-up including Hyattsville’s own Tanglewood Sue, owner of Tanglewood Works. Their fans love the band’s “Raucous Merry-Making Multi-Morphous Louisiana-style.” Local publications like the Hyattsville Wire have featured them, and performed at local favorite, Community Forklift. The Wild Anacostias will be sure to bring the house down and get you on your feet on Saturday, September 17th as one of the grand finale performers of the Hyattsville Arts Festival at 4 PM!
