"Bringing an urban soundscape to St. Olaf"

Shortly after arriving at St. Olaf College three years ago, Salvador Alvarez ’19 created an event focused on promoting an urban soundscape of diverse culture not readily present in the small-town Midwest. Alvarez and three friends transformed the Lion’s Pause Mane Stage into a vibrant music festival called Urban Sound, showcasing a full line-up of student talent complete with a master of ceremonies and lighting design. - St. Olaf College


Still working on that hot first release.



Salvarez is a hip-hop artist from San Francisco, California who creates music that has a taste of funk. His music can be enjoyed for its vibes and rhythm, as well as its rap-inspired lyricism.

Now featured in his own YouTube channel, Smack TV, Salvarez is posting original music and covers. He is working with friends to produce the free online content. He can also be seen posting his videos on his Facebook page. 

Born into the 90s, Salvarez grew up around remnants of the funk and electronic groove of the 80s and 90s. Today, Salvarez produces music inspired by legends Michael Jackson, James Brown, and Daft Punk, just to name a few. Salvarez knew he belonged on the stage upon watching his middle school friend breakdance in front of the annual talent show. The following year, Salvarez took the stage and astonished the crowd with a tribute to MJ.

“His music is timeless.” -Paulo Gladney, St. Olaf College ’19

“I can feel it!” -Nathan Chin, St. Olaf College ‘20
