Straight from Smart Bar: Chicago’s underground activist and superlative selector is in the mix live in Detroit.

Although she only began to DJ in her 20s during college, Marea Stamper AKA The Black Madonna has gone from rural Kentucky, selling mixtapes out of her car at illegal raves as a young teenager, to the full-time talent booker at the legendary Chicago house and techno club, Smart Bar. One of the most respected new DJs and producers working today, making, playing and booking dance music, The Black Madonna is a passionate and vocal champion of positive change with a global perspective: speaking openly about attitudes to women, people of color and the LGBTQ community, both on and off the dancefloor.
