Moesha 13, rapper and DJ from Marseille, France, performs at Sunset Carnavale as part of CITY CITÉ and ELEVATE in Atlanta.
MOESHA 13 is an multihyphenate artist from Marseille, whose music fuses techno and Afro, Kuduro and Baile Funk, under the concept of “gadjicore”.
Moesha 13 is the female persona of Shaun that they use as a stage character. Focused on creating pop and experimental musical landscapes, their work is marked by “enjaillement” – a term from Ivory Coast refering to amusment and festivity - activism and performance.
An underground icon of the international club scene, they sing, mix, and produce music, exploring a large variety of influences, from empowering rap lyrics, modern dancehall to dancefloor aesthetic. They want to create a highly personal and incandescent hybrid work of art.
Sunset Carnavale will use technology to create an immersive and interactive art experience featuring live music, art, dancers, deejays & performance artists. Attendees will be completely immersed in the work of selected artists, including DJs, live music, as well as performances from stilt walkers, cos-players, contortionists, live painters, drummers, carnival dancers & more.
Internationally known DJ/Producer, Salah Ananse will curate an experience that will celebrate not only the rich history of art & music found in Atlanta, but also the mixture of African & African American culture unique to Atlanta’s Lakewood Community.
Moesha 13’s performance at Sunset Carnavale is presented by ELEVATE, Villa Albertine and France-Atlanta.
