The Tea: VeVe Marley
In this new online series, women musicians perform original work via live-stream on the museum’s social media channels on the first Friday of the month. Each session includes a short interview, conducted over a cup of tea, which explores the artist’s creative process. The Tea proudly welcomes local Afro-folk singer Violet Marley from the D.C.-based band VeVe & Tha Rebels this month, and will be live streaming on NMWA’s Facebook page and at nmwa.org/livestream.
VeVe Marley is a D.C.-based singer/songwriter and guitarist whose music blends elements of folk, Afrobeat, R&B, and hip-hop to create dreamy, soulful vibes while speaking on issues of identity, spirituality, racism, and the Black experience. Marley has performed and recorded since 2013. Her most recent project, with her band VeVe and Tha Rebels, is entitled “The EP.”
