FEATURING

Mariah Ivey & TribesouL
Mariah Ivey & TribeSouL are a Hip-Hop/Soul & Spoken Word Collective based out of Indianapolis, IN. Led by national Spoken Word Artist and MC Mariah Ivey, the group began to make waves within their home-city, Indianapolis, IN, bringing to the forefront a message of Hope, Communal Healing, Love, Unity, and Sacred Spirituality. Combining various sounds + art forms, TribeSouL found their niche in the stream of Hip-Hop, Neo-Soul, Funk, and Reggae with Gospel Influences. Not only do their shows reflect their versatility, warm energy, and natural chemistry, their music and poetry continuously adds to and elevates the CULTURE, whether performed over an acoustic set, a solo poetry set, or with the full LIVE Band!
