Giants: Stories of Existence, Resilience, & Resistance
GIANTS is a decolonizing creative process aimed at using music to capture the myriad experiences of people of color. The album builds on the tradition of resistance and resilience that people of color around the world have shown in the fight to combat the ill effects of colonization. Examples include but not limited to the Idle No More movement, Black Lives Matter Movement, Standing Rock Movement and the South African University protests.
The beauty of GIANTS is the use of different genres of music such as HighLife Music from Ghana, Hip-Hop, Soul, R&B to create a cohesive sound I call Afro-Soul. The album features musicians from around the world such as Ghanaian spoken word artist Mutombo Da Poet, Canadian Hip-Hop group Canadian Winter, Vancouver Hip-Hop artist K!mmortal and poets from the Hamilton Youth Slam and Syrian-born rapper Mother Tareka and more.
