Proyecto Latina: Ruby Yo! @ 35th St. Cafe

Join Proyecto Latina on Monday, September 21st @ 7 p.m. as we make our way to McKinley Park to the 35th Street Cafe to host our featured presenter, Marilyn Camacho a.k.a Ruby Yo!, hear your work on the open mic, and see what emerges from the chisme box!

Marilyn Camacho is hip-hop femcee, singer, and songwriter Ruby Yo! Her music is a mix of hip-hop, R&B, and Latin soul that rings familiar to her Puerto Rican roots. As Ruby Yo!, Camacho strives to fill the current void in hip-hop music, and ensure that the woman’s voice is truly heard and represented in a respectable fashion that’s true to the art form and its original purpose. You can catch Ruby Yo! performing at several open mics and events around the city. Check out Ruby Yo’s! online: myspace and facebook. *
