Described as spiritual and sensual, Genie Santiago is a Boston based musician, poet, visual artist, artivist, and bruja. Her art draws from her experience growing up in poverty, overcoming trauma, and as a Queer Latina. Genie is unafraid to empower others to overcome trauma, decolonize the mind, promote sexual freedom, and stray from the ideals of self-hatred that society places upon us. She can be found blessing many stages performing original poetry and songs from her EP, "Know Your Worth", and her newest singles, "Spirit Party" and "Revelación".
