With so much music being created and distributed its hard to filter so many artist day in and day out. Then comes something serene and luminous, so silky that when you hear it you can do nothing but groove to it.
Arises NDO ( vocalist, musician, dj) and Rugawd ( musician, producer) from Tampa, FL. Two separate artist but also a dynamic duo of soul, sultry funk, and breezy r&b. For fans of Ravyn Lenae, Thundercat, and Jamila Woods, they bring the vibes out of thin air, and are a must see live.
NDO & Rugawd took a journey from Tampa for their first performance in Atlanta, Oct 26th. They got picked up by a Miami based company called Backroom Sessions, who puts on a wide variety of artist from hip-hop acts to rock bands touring the states. They slid thru ATL for part of their tour and NDO & Rugawd got to rock it.
The event space was tucked away in the cut in south-west ATL at a dope visual arts studio. Mostly hip-hop graced the stage along with an awesome poet to kick the night off. After a few acts, NDO & Rugawd set up and soothed the ears of a very intimate crowd. A lot of love was shown, drinks were poured, and networking in the building was heavy.
