Oberlin Folk Fest 2019 is thrilled to announce the SECOND of three headliners!
?? Sudan Archives ??
Violinist and vocalist Sudan Archives writes, plays, and produces her own music. Drawing inspiration from Sudanese fiddlers, she is self-taught on the violin, and her unique songs fold in elements of R&B, and experimental electronic music.
Read her full bio.
Bebé Machete (FKA Xango/Suave) is a genderqueer Puerto Rican artist from Hartford, CT. Their music blends salsa, hip-hop, Lo Fi, and experimental rock, dealing with issues of queerness, resistance, and liberation. They seek to put ancestral rhythms and modes of resistance into a contemporary experimental pop context.
Blending themes of tenderness and intimacy with radical political messages, their music seeks to promote love and community alongside struggles of decolonization and liberation internationally. Their set for Folk Fest will be fully acoustic.
