Event Description

In a two-album discography, musicians Ishmael “Butterfly” Butler, Mariana “Ladybug Mecca” Vieira, and Craig “Doodlebug” Irving, collectively known as Digable Planets, released back to back emblematic records, imbued with 90’s idealism, fueling that eraʻs ascension of Hip-Hop.

Taking a cue from Prince and The Revolution, this trio fronted a multi-gendered collective voice that spoke directly to Black ffolkes across the board. Ladybug’s measured, surgical flow gave balance to Butterfly’s spoken-word tone and Doodlebug’s Five Percenters’ mathematics.
