Inspired by son jarocho, soul, dancehall, and hip hop, Maya Jupiter brings her lively stage performance to KCET's "Artbound Presents Studio A." Her music fuses traditional Mexican folk and urban contemporary hip hop with socially conscious lyrics. For the LA-based vocalist, Jupiter's sound is a mixed palette, shifting from politically charged rap, to soulful breakdowns, to the lurching beats of dub and reggae. Her music breaks down boundaries between genres, offering up a taste of diverse sonic cuisines. As a charismatic frontwoman, Jupiter channels multiple identities on-stage – from the hip-hop MC to an edgy pop songstress – but her wide-ranging music is held together by a message of hope and justice.
