The Smokin Grooves Festival in Southern California is known for bringing together a special mix of artists, but this year’s line-up was INCREDIBLE. Even headliner Erykah Badu took a moment on stage to compliment the well-chosen collection, whom she called “some of my best friends.” Other than the Queen Ms. Badu, some of SBVRSL’s favorite stage acts this year (captured in the video below) were LION BABE, Smino, and Anderson .Paak (who performed as Nxworries with partner Knxwledge). LION BABE has been in the studio a lot lately recording a new album, but you can catch them at another amazing festival with Erykah Badu in Maryland this August.
Another HUGE highlight was getting to sit down with international multi-decade superstars, Les Nubians! The songstress sisters talked about festival energy, women empowerment, and more. Stay tuned for their interview coming soon right here at SBVRSL.com
