The Black Madonna Day Party
15Utah / DJ Dials present The Black Madonna w/ support from David Harness. Day Party Sunday 9/22 @ The Phoenix Hotel. 12PM - 6PM.
In some ways, the story of The Black Madonna begins with three magic words, scrawled in shoe polish on a broken-down box and hung with Christmas lights on the wall at a small sweaty party: We Still Believe.“I think you have to give up completely to really understand what hope is. We didn’t have any decorations, so I took a box and wrote, ‘We Still Believe’ on it. I needed to believe that something better was possible and that’s how it started. If you don’t have any hope, then write some up and hang it on the wall.”How does one transform, barely overnight, from hometown hero into one of the most sought after and respected DJs on the planet?In a span of a few years, The Black Madonna (AKA Marea Stamper) used her grit and talent to propel herself into a world that not long ago would have rejected someone outside of its conventions. And yet we are here, and she stands as an absolute force of nature in dance music, just getting started at nearly forty years old, leaving no time soon.
