Arizona Arts Live

The Tucson Studio presents Mattea performing the song, “Yours, Body and Soil,” recorded on location at the Tucson Botanical Gardens.

Mattea is a queer black artist based in Tucson who creates what has been described as Sonoran-Soul. She strives to grow a body of work that chips at the tyrannical empire of white supremacy with a word on a wing and a solid grip on the groove.

Premiered June 25, 2020


After the performance, Mattea and Arizona Arts Live urge you to visit Tucson Reparations and Black Lives Matter Tucson. Read about, donate to, and engage with these organizations so they can continue their essential activism in our community.

The Tucson Studio, a program of Arizona Arts Live, is a resource for Southern Arizona artists offering technical assistance with audio and video production for live performance, as well as a platform to showcase performances from local artists.

Concerts premiere every Thursday at 6 p.m. and allows viewers to donate directly to the artists.
