Artist Zahyia Rolle on Afrofuturism, the state of the music industry, and more
Rochester’s Zahyia Rolle is known for pushing traditional boundaries in music. From jazz, to hip-hip, rock, music theater, funk, and soul, she experiments with and embraces it all. “I don’t believe creatives are ever in one lane. We’re really more like 14 different colors of Play-Doh mashed together,” she told the Rochester Beacon.
