Chef Marcus Samulesson’s Streetbird NYC restaurant on 116th and FDB is shining a light on Sweden’s top hip-hop artists, hosting a series of FREE live shows featuring artists Linda Pira, Elliphant, Chapee, and Sabina Ddumba.
Nasta Nivå, presented by Red Bull Sweden, is a project filmed for TV where renowned and established artists are paired with up and coming talent to be mentored and record new music. During three extremely intense days they will live, eat, drink, laugh, get inspired and – hopefully – create some awesome sounding music together. The last day they will record the song in the Red Bull Studios and then head straight for Marcus Samuelsson latest Harlem restaurant Streetbird – in order to perform live on stage together.
