The University Programming Council’s Live! at the Loft will feature artists Akil Dasan and Devynity on Friday, April 21, at 8 p.m. in the Lane University Center’s Derezinski Lounge. The performance is free and open to the public.
Dasan, who performs an African Judaic blend of cultural music, returns to Frostburg after a packed concert in spring 2004. Once seen on UPN’s, “Road to Stardom with Missy Eliot,” Dasan has since drawn from his unique background and influences to produce his signature mix of multiple talents. Rapper, singer, musician, beat-boxer and break dancer, Dasan embodies everything that hip-hop is.
Devynity began writing poetry in the sixth grade and took her spoken word performance to the stage at the age of 14. Inspired by the Fugees and Biggie, Devynity set out to express her individuality through music. Her words have evolved from the aggressive rants of a teenage writing to be heard to the eloquent lyricism which she develops today. Working as an emcee and a spoken word artist, Devynity attacks the conformities that exist in both male-dominated genres and strives to create pieces that defy the conventions of female artists.
