RUBY IBARRA

Born in the Philippines, Ruby spent the first 4 years of her life in Tacloban City before her family eventually settled in San Lorenzo, California. Submerged in the melting pot of the Bay Area, Ruby’s adolescent years introduced her to a wide array of cultures, experiences, and most importantly: hip hop, which resonated at every corner of her neighborhood.
As a teenager, Ruby began crafting her own rhymes until she began to develop her own style and became comfortable with sharing her story. She quickly picked up music production shortly there after and eventually started performing publicly, starting in the college and local venue circuits.

Ruby's unmatched talent and work ethic has given her the opportunity to perform at large festivals such as Rock The Bells as well as at prestigious venues like the Smithsonian Museum and a headlining, sold-out two day residency at the Getty Museum. Three of her independently released videos even gained over 1M views in less than a week. Ruby's newly released EP Circa ’91 went on #29 on the iTunes rap/hip-hop album charts, next to the likes of Macklemore and Kendrick Lamar. Following a tour of the Philippines, Ruby was featured as part of the 60th annual Grammy Awards festivities in New York through a music collaboration and performance with Grammy nominee SZA. Ruby's music has been featured in several TV shows, films and documentaries (including the Sundance Film Festival premiered "A Thousand Cuts") and Ruby has even directed several of her music videos and behind-the-scenes documentaries.

In 2010, Ruby began releasing multiple videos on Youtube, which created a buzz after several of those videos were featured on XXL Magazine and Worldstar Hip Hop. Her videos, “Game Up” and “Dosey Doe”, each amassed over 100,000 views, eventually garnering the attention of DJ Kay Slay, who gave her the nickname, “Hip Hop”. On December 12, 2012, Ruby released her debut mixtape, Lost in Translation, hosted by DJ Kay Slay, which premiered that same night on Shade 45 Satellite Radio in New York City. Since its release, Lost in Translation has accumulated over 50,000 Soundcloud streams and nearly 100,000 digital downloads.

South by Southwest, stylized as SXSW and colloquially referred to as South By, is an annual international conglomeration of parallel film, interactive media, and music festivals and conferences organized jointly that take place in mid-March in Austin, Texas, United States. It began in 1987 and has continued to grow in both scope and size every year, it is the music industry's biggest and most attended entertainment conference in the world. The festival is known for helping to break artists' careers like Billie Eilish, Kendrick Lamar and Anderson .Paak, who all played several showcases at the festival and conference prior to their mainstream success.

International R&B artist Kiana V was the only one selected from the Philippines to perform and she will co-headline a showcase taking place at the Higher Ground on Wednesday. Kiana is slated to perform 12A-1240A, just as Wednesday night turns into Thursday morning.

The showcase is free to attend to all SXSW badge holders and also features JBABE (India), Sara King (Dallas), Kayan (India), Amra (Mongolia), MEYY (Belgium) & local Angelica Rahe from Austin. Kiana will perform right before Angelica for forty minutes where you'll hear a mix of her hit singles with new feel-good anthems like the critically acclaimed "Heartbeat on Me."
