The Chicana from Down Under joins ARTIVIST ENTERTAINMENT For An Exciting Evening of Music And Art! ARTISTA + ACTIVISTA = ARTIVISTA! Fri, Sept 16 8:30PM @FordTheatres
@mayajupiter is an energetic, passionate emcee and performer. Her powerful blend of Hip Hop, Rock, Latin and African music is truly unique and entertaining. Maya’s Artivism began in her early twenties when she facilitated Hip Hop songwriting workshops with at-risk youth in her hometown of Sydney, Australia. In 2012 she was an official Ambassador for ‘The Line campaign,’ an Australian government anti-violence initiative.
Now living and raising a family in Los Angeles, Maya released an album produced by Martha Gonzalez and Quetzal Flores. She is on the advisory board at Peace Over Violence and has been a spokesperson for their Denim Day Campaign bringing awareness to Sexual Violence and was recognized with the Voice Over Violence Humanitarian Award.
In 2013, Maya co-founded Artivist Entertainment to provide support for artists who have chosen to use their work to promote positive social transformation. She has also been unwavering in her own work as an Artivist releasing songs and music videos that highlight some of today’s toughest topics such as modern-day slavery, sexual violence and the objectification of women in media. Her latest song “Madre Tierra” interrogates women’s varied roles in the home, the public sphere, on political levels and all the ways we shape social political culture, drawing on various historical references of women who have had significant impact on the world and in critical thought. We look forward to the LIVE premiere of “Madre Tierra” this FRI SEP 16 @FordTheatres 2580 Cahuenga Blvd East, Los Angeles, CA
