“Her soulful voice fills every corner… perfect” – The Current
Mayyadda is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer from Minneapolis who aspires to use her music to make people slow down, find themselves in another perspective, and feel their way towards individual and collective healing. With an eclectic mix of neo-soul vocals, folksy guitar, pop-style piano with trap beats sprinkled in for flavor, she likes to refer to her genre as “BlackGirlMagic.”
She has been active as a recording artist since 2015, releasing four projects since then: most recently, TRY&REMEMBER, a sonic journey thru the risks one takes on their way to healing, which she released in October 2021.
Black Velvet Punks is a jazz punk, neo-soul and hip hop group that consists of founder Taylor Ngiri Seaberg (they/them), a genderqueer multi-instrumentalist, Traiveon Dunlap (drums and vocals), and Roderick Glasper (bass). Black Velvet Punks stands for any players that join with the soulful brainchild to emphasize the kick and splatter of punk with a tapestry of neo-soul charm and smoothness. The group has performed at Walker Art Center’s Terrace Thursdays, 2019 Indeed Hullabaloo, KFAI MinneCulture, First Avenue Goes to the Minnesota State Fair, MCN6’s Bands on Vans Series, and more.
