DIO GANHDIH (Oakland) – **MONTREAL DEBUT**
Dio Ganhdih is a queer indigenous rapper with a heart beat based in Brooklyn, an imagination spun in upstate New York, and a nervous system best suited for the Bay Area. From deep within Mother Nature’s beauterus, Dio Ganhdih, otherwise known as Heavily Falling Snow, delivers subhersive and unapologetically raw rhymes. Dio utilizes poetry and lyricism to push cultural resiliency while resisting settler-colonialism and distorting imperialist visions of her native homeland. Her latest EP “Do It Ourselves” was released in 2017.
SEE MONSTERS (BC) – **MONTREAL DEBUT**
The See Monsters are Dean Hunt (DJ/Production) & Bracken Hanuse Corlett (Live-Visuals). They have been performing across Turtle Island since 2011, initially as members of Skookum Sound System and now as their current audio-visual duo. Both artists retain sonic and visual connection to their Indigenous lineage and bring forth a fused performance of Northwest Coast bass and moving light and images. They are known to transform the spaces they work in – moving fluidly from art gallery, to community space, to dance floor. Dean has been DJing and producing music for 15+ years. He digs into the realms of bass music with a heavy Northwest Coast influence. He also practices full-time as a contemporary artist working within the Heiltsuk traditions of painting and carving. Bracken comes from the Wuikinuxv and Klahoose Nations and works in a variety of media including digital design, painting and sculpture. He has recently been creating stories and drawings for 2D and 3D animation.
