Take a look at our HypeFest Diary to get to know the artists performing at the event!

Introducing Seysei, with her eclectic taste she is in tune with all things music, she performs a mix of pop and r&b. Seysei is full of passion with a heart of gold Seysei is bringing all of her energy to the stage at HypeFest this Saturday. 

Born in India, Seysei moved to America at the young age of two. With Indian heritage and American upbringing, Seysei kept to her roots, being influenced by the best of both worlds.  American and Indian culture were a big part of the music she listened to growing up with a mix of Bollywood and Beyonce songs playing in the background of the soundtrack of her life. 

“I noticed that Indian voices were very different from American pop/RnB ones and maybe that's why they weren't as popular in the states. I wondered why I couldn’t be that type of American voice/pop icon that simultaneously represented 1.3 billion faces of our world’s population over in India and other parts of the globe? I had never seen anyone like that on TV growing up.”

Seysei had a diverse range of musical artists that influenced her love for music while growing up. This included Indian Bollywood producers, Korean-pop Idols, and pop icons like Lady Gaga, Kehlani, Ariana Grande, and Shania Twain.

Her recent trip to India helped her understand more about where she came from. One of Seysei's’ goals is to use her platform as an artist to shed light on something very near and dear to her heart, Indian culture. Especially bringing knowledge to those who are unaware of Indian artists called “Nagas.”

"Putting it simply, Indians and Nagas have historically been at odds socially and politically, and that continues to this day. My parents made a bold move to marry each other, making my sister and I the children of a Romeo and Juliet type of scenario. Being the result of mixed cultural background and coupling it with my American attitude; I’m ready to make bold moves and ultimately show the world something they’ve never seen.”

With so many things already accomplished in her career, Seysei has already shot her first music video, finished her first single, and began prepping for her next single to be released. She is excited to showcase her new music and perform with a wide range of genres and unique artists at HypeFest!

“HypeFest 2018 is so different from others in the metroplex because it showcases exactly what I'm excited about! An array of artists from different backgrounds and cultures who want to use music to make a difference, to represent people who relate to them and to HYPE audiences up about Dallas music culture. Who wouldn't want a piece of this?!”
