Yahzarah crooning to the crowd
This past weekend Gypsy Soul had the opportunity to accomplish a goal set years ago, to program and manage the Baltimore African American Festival Cultural Stage.

This year under the management of greiBO Media, the Baltimore African American Festival hosted one of the biggest crowds ever. Carnival rides, youth basketball, vendors of all kinds, an extensive variety of food and a diverse offering of entertainment made up Baltimore's 4th of July weekend.
Gypsy Soul has gained a great reputation that we are proud of as being a leader in talent introduction to the DMV area and the Cultural Stage gave us a bigger platform to showcase amazing artists like C Clear, Genesis The Grey Kid, Green Tea, & Yahzarah amongst many others.

With the help of DJ Harvey Dent, DJ Phaze, Hiphopcleopatra, and Walter Maxfield Jones Baltimore got to hear some great music and see some wonderful ethnic talent.

One of the biggest compliments of the weekend was when Chrisette Michelle came to our stage to watch at least two of our featured artists, Genesis The Grey Kid & Kimberly Nichole. The other biggest compliments was when she shouted out the quality of entertainment on the Cultural Stage to the crowd during her performance on the main stage...it doesnt get too much better than that!

In 90 degree heat it takes a strong team to organize and pull off a great show and the team at Gypsy Soul worked through long hours and bad ass heat to entertain the hundreds that visited our stage. Without Will, InTea, Lauren, Ashley, Tanae, & Felecia this dream could not have become a reality. And with out Nocturnal Charm, Zamark & company, Edith, & Quinn the documentation of this surreal moment would have been impossible.
The best partner in the WORLD, Will
We truly appreciate the team at greiBO, especially Shelonda and Blanche, for trusting us to be able to put on an entertaining event that would make them, the city, sponsors, and art lovers proud.
