Mayda. Courtsey of Mayda.
Opening Ceremony and Concert
TPT and MN Original present a special Northern Spark opening ceremony concert with local Twin Cities artist, Mayda and her band. Mayda is a tiny young artist budding from In Cheon City, South Korea. Her R&B-infused pop is undeniably fresh, as she swings between pared-down acoustic struts, full-band funkadelic blasts, and electronic drumbeats and synth flourishes that would make the Purple One proud. The result is a slick, expansive, and evolving pop sound, aided in part by producer and mentor Michael Bland, who drums with SoulAsylum, Prince, and Nick Jonas.
