Black History and Art: A conversation at Block Heater 2022, presented by ATB
ATB presents a special Block Heater Black History Month digital panel on Thursday February 17 from 7:00 – 8:30 pm MT, in partnership with, and hosted by, Tomi Ajele and Dooshima Jev of Afros in tha city. They’ll lead an insightful, wide-ranging conversation with Cadence Weapon, Witch Prophet, Brendan Grey of Super Duty Tough Work and D’orjay the Singing Shaman that delves into the artists’ music, background, history and art.
2021 Polaris Prize winner Cadence Weapon rallies for change with electro-infused beats. Queer Ethiopian/Eritrean artist Witch Prophet creates a layered hip-hop, jazz and soul-inspired soundscape. Super Duty Tough Work is a deep, groove-laden golden era hip hop journey. D’orjay The Singing Shaman’s country music colours outside the lines with anthemic, bold blues, honky-tonk and rock-flavoured roots.
