Any artist can “do their thing,” but not every artist can teach their thing or get audiences involved in their thing. The stylings of Starve Marve offer a performing clash of a beat-making workshop, cultural exhibition, social-political commentary, and comedy show all in one. An inspirational expression!

Born in South Florida by Nigerian immigrants, Starve Marve is an exemplar of the 1st generation American. Consistently torn between American and Afro culture, Starve finds his only balance in the sounds he creates. Greatly encouraged by the individuality of Outkast, Marve traverses cross-genre territory influenced by the road trips with his DJ father’s collection of Bob Marley & Fela Kuti, the Boom Bap 90’s he grew up within, and the 8O8’s that have taken over.
