Last year, we got a call from the West End Cultural Centre, asking if we wanted to be part of Melodies and Mecredi. Of course, we said yes. “By the way, we’re pairing you up with a rapper…”Didn’t think you’d ever hear Rap & Latin music together in Winnipeg? Now’s your chance, and we’ll surely be just as surprised as you are. Here are five things you should know about rapper LORENZO, who you’ll see with us on Wednesday, March 7 at the WECC:
1. His style is enjoyed by people who typically “aren’t into rap.”
2. He’s recorded with Wab Kinew
3. He’s from Little Saskatchewan First Nation located in Interlake Region of Manitoba. (Fun fact: Amber Epp spent a couple childhood years in Peguis First Nation.)
4. He raps, sings, and plays guitar.
5. His YouTube video has over 40 000 hits!
You can see LORENZO and Trio Bembe at the WECC on Wednesday, Mar 7. For more details, visit the GIGS section of our website.
