Presenter/Promoter: Revolutions Per Minute (RPM)
Are you a fan of Indigenous music but often don’t know where to start your search for the best artists out there? Behold Revolutions Per Minute, AKA RPM, a global Indigenous music platform, label, and artist collective. This year they present Catalyst, an exciting evening of music showcasing some of today’s most compelling Indigenous voices in electronic experimentation. Each performer is a catalyst, a vector for new sounds and transformation.
The lineup includes Ziibiwan, an emerging Anishinaabe electronic artist/producer from Toronto; Somali-Canadian beat producer, Obuxum; Dio Ganhdih, a queer Indigenous rapper from New York; feminist rapper, poet, and all-around fierce lyricist Chhoti Maa; and the radical queer politics and sounds of Elysia Crampton.
