BKMF: April + Vista w/ Yaya Bey

Presented by the Brooklyn Magazine Festival
$15.00 - $20.00
with Yaya Bey

This June, the team behind Brooklyn Magazine is thrilled to announce the first ever Brooklyn Magazine Festival, a borough wide celebration taking place June 15th through the 18th.

BKMF will strike the balance between the worldly and the local with a range of bands that are both familiar to many and ready to be discovered. The music itself will span genres, featuring a two day outdoor event in Prospect Park, as well as a club show series in venues throughout Brooklyn.

Check out www.bkmag.com/bkmf for the full lineup, and more info.

Per the request of performers, masks are encouraged to be worn while indoors.


“D.C. based duo April + VISTA are the odd ones out, toting a cinematic sound that whisks listeners into a world of their own. April George (violinist, pianist, vocalist, composer) and mattVISTA (producer, bassist, composer) pull from a wildly eclectic range of influences, fusing lush soundscapes and string arrangements with rich textures and mesmeric storytelling.”

Yaya Bey

“Yaya Bey is one of R&B’s most exciting storytellers. Using a combination of ancestral forces and her own self-actualization, the singer/songwriter seamlessly navigates life’s hardships and joyful moments through music. Bey’s new album, ‘Remember Your North Star’ (out June 17), captures this emotional rollercoaster with a fusion of soul, jazz, reggae, afrobeat and hip-hop that feeds the soul. The artist’s knack for storytelling is best displayed in the album’s lead single, “keisha”. It’s an anthemic embodiment of fed-up women everywhere who have given their all in a relationship, yet their physical body nor spiritual mind could never be enough.”
