Nomadic Massive (QC)
Rapping in English, French, Creole, Spanish and Arabic, Montreal’s best-kept Hip-hop secret, Nomadic Massive, makes itself heard across borders and among cultures. These messengers of universal understanding, and whistle-blowers against social injustice, this collective of independent hip-hop artists first recorded in 2006 with Nomad’s Land. Enthusiastic audiences and critics were all ears. Evolving from its early days of two turntables and a microphone, the musical nomads of Nomadic Massive represent an open-minded Hip-Hop which finds its inspirations in the traditions of the past. Combining live instrumentation, samples, and a wide array of vocal styles, this super-group has become synonymous with energetic and crowd-moving live shows. Seamlessly swinging between soul, reggae, jazz, blues, Afro-Caribbean, Latin-American and North-African influences, Nomadic Massive continues to redefine what hip-hop can achieve on a global level.
