  • This event has passed.

At times she’s a soothing lead singer and at times she’s a cold-blooded MC. Her smooth, quirky flow over House, Bass beats is electric. Formally known as ZenSoFly, ZƎN is a hypnotic music artist/producer hailed by the Indy Week as the “Upstart Raleigh club charmer and image guru.” She was born to an Afro-Cuban mother and Filipino/African father in New York and was raised in North Carolina. She has been featured on AFROPUNK, NPR , Hype Beast, Marie Claire Magazine, Sofar Sounds, Tom Tom Magazine, Moogfest & more. She’s graced the same lineups as Tierra Whack, Erykah Badu, Rico Nasty, Flying Lotus, Madame Ghandi, Kelela, Solange, Suzi Analogue, Erykah Badu, Big Freedia, JunglePu$$y, Kingdom and more. ZƎN is a trailblazer and she shows no signs of slowing down. She is currently working on her debut album.

Important folk-like characteristics of hip hop, especially the so-called “old school” variety, are its rootedness in oral traditions, its shared ownership, its patterns of diffusion, and its use of homemade instruments.

This season, Music of the Carolinas features artists from the next generation of traditional music in North Carolina, in partnership with the Millennial Traditional Artists Project of the North Carolina Arts Council’s Folklife Program. Since 2016, the MTA Project has identified and served younger generation artists keeping and creating our state’s cultural traditions. Learn more in the Millennial Traditional Artists Directory
