On a beautiful night in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, the scene was set as some of LA's most talented artists gathered to display their artwork and music. The Art + Soul event presented by Nu-Soul Magazine gave people a chance to come out and discover the underground art movement sweeping the streets of LA.
Nu-Soul Magazine founded by Norman Mayers in 2006, bridges the gap between the world of R&B/soul and the underground vibes of electronica. Nu-Soul showcases artists and events in Greater Los Angeles updating the Neo-Soul community about the latest trends in soul and urban culture.
Art +Soul featured artists Teresa Bone, City Mindfunk, Otha Davis, Christine Miyahari, Kyoko Cole, Daniel Felechner, Lola, Gigi, and Keenan Chapman. Painting, clothes and multiple forms of art were curated on the second floor of The Mezz located on South Spring Street.
Vendors included fashion and jewelry from Thot Creations, Boho Funk, Litered Nation, JWNY, Sluts and Diamonds, and Polish by Ash.
The soundtrack for the night was provided by Seven57 and guest DJ Kronika (Soulection) that had the vibe feeling just right mixing old school soul, R&B, Hip-Hop, Neo-Soul and electronica.
The night was topped off by featured act Nikki Grier providing her soulfully and sexy performance with covers such as "Sugarfree" and songs from her most recent release "Soulgasm Vol. 9 - The Dreamy Water Sign" with grooves such as "Everyday"and "Love For Your Love."
