The Black Madonna


A patient conspirator in disco’s revenge, over the last year The Black Madonna (Marea Stamper) has taken a giant step forward into the international DJ premier league.

Before that, she has been refining an inclusive and celebratory vision of house music’s ongoing role as both method for movement and vehicle of social change. The former lead booker at Chicago’s iconic Smart Bar – the oldest independent venue in North America –, the Black Madonna’s DJ sets feel like a musical affirmation of the life-changing possibilities of disco, house and beyond.
