Ithaca Underground descends upon the GrassRoots cabaret tent with a 4 hour slot of our favorite local DIY acts. The night will take us on an incredible journey through uncharted realms of electro-noise, experimental percussion, good ol’ indie rock n’ roll, and afrofuturist feminist hip-hop. Come chill with us!
SAMMUS is an upstate New York-based rap artist, producer, and PhD student at Cornell University with Congolese and Ivorian family roots. Her production is characterized by her use of uniquely chopped samples, and video game-like synths. Labeled the “”rap Aisha Tyler”” by MTV Iggy for her intelligent lyrics, Sammus has built a following within the underground hip hop scene and has become one of the faces of black female geeks within the growing nerdcore hip hop movement.
