Magna Carda

Season 8, Episode 1 of 8

Austin's premiere rap group, Magna Carda, makes a name for themselves within the local and global music scene. Extended: Breaking into the Austin music scene was never going to be easy but Magna Carda faced the additional challenge of being a hip-hop act in a city with a long, storied history of rock and roll. MC-producer duo Megz Kelli and Dougie Do fought through this obstacle by adding what is now their signature - live instrumentation. Described by Mashable as "Austin's answer to The Roots," Magna Carda's genre-defying blend of rap-meets-jazz-meets-R&B-meets-electronic has quickly captured the imagination of listeners and the attention of critics alike in Austin and beyond.
