Returning to Montreal after an electrifying Lux Magna performance are the Snotty Nose Rez Kids (SNRK), an Indigenous hip hop duo currently based out of Vancouver, BC. Proudly hailing from the Haisla Nation, SNRK creates music that pays homage to their upbringing on the Rez in Kitamaat Village while cleverly addressing larger themes related to Indigenous identity, politics and resistance. After filling the Sala Rossa with magic in January, they’re back with a brand new album.
Mi'kmaq rapper Q052 - Q stands for Quentin, 052 is the official governmental name for his reserve, Gesgapegiag - tells stories of Rez reality and addresses issues Indigenous People are facing across Turtle Island today. An old school hip hop punch in the face, his lyrics confront governments and individuals to demand change.
