The N. St. Marys Walkabout is a collective effort to bring our community together through the creative mediums of art and music. Artistic genres of all sorts such as live art, live music, crafts, body art, fashion, photography, and much more will encompass St. Marys for one very special evening.

Born and trained in Spain, and now based in Houston, dancer/educator Silvia Salamanca draws from the dance genre tribal fusion to put her own twist on zambra mora, which combines both Spanish gypsy and Arabic influences. In 2013, Salamanca helped launch SA’s inaugural Gitana Revolucion, and returns this week to lead workshops and headline a Saturday night showcase. In addition to Salamanca’s performance, the main event boasts live music from Dum Tek Support and presentations by Ballet Folklorico de Navarro, Desert Moonbeams and event organizer Giomara Bazaldua, among others.
SA rapper Milli Mars lithely toes the line between straight-up, boom-bap rhymes and some weirder, slow-leaning stuff, creating mass appeal with hip-hop head integrity. Already spotted in Fader, Complex and Vibe, Mars’ collected delivery shows potential for breakthrough, the best of his tracks oozing the confidence necessary to pull his weight in the national game. On record, Mars splits his time between delivery modes, spitting either the dark, near-whispers of “Sim Simma” or the larger than life attitude of “The Alarm.” In the live setting, expect all of Mars’ material to lean towards the style of swagger, commanding his language and the audience, rolling his eyes back in his head and supported by his WZKD crew. With Rabbit in Owl, the Onyx Humms, Sam Rubik.

A growing force in the Austin scene, O Conqueror is living up to its name, taking over all corners of America. With a folk-infused brand of indie rock, male and female harmonies, and unexpected horn sections, it’s hard not to believe O Conqueror’s sprawling success. Despite being of German origin, David Stükenberg’s music is pure Appalachian rock. With a sound that could have been beamed in from the vast unknown of the universe, Bright Like the Sun’s space rock influence shines with tidal waves of noise that develop into an extraterrestrial symphony of layered guitars.
