Coast Salish multimedia hip-hop artist (and long time RPM podcast host and contributor) Ostwelve wrote and delivered some mighty words at the recent Hip Hop vs Harper event in Vancouver. #noEndbridge #noPipelines

Ever the intelligent, clever, perfectly biting provocateur, Ostwelve “dropped a couple verses I dropped a couple verses dedicated to Kinder Morgan and Enbridge and their loser friends.

Listener discretion is advised…course language and deadly flows

This might be the best thing you see this week, from the entire school in Berens River First Nation – “Cup Song.”

The Cup Song is a traditional song combined with a percussive game of playing with cups. What music teacher Ken Davidson did with students Tatyanna Munkman (singer) and Alex Semple (guitar) along with all the 300 school kids’ participation in Berens River First Nation is marvellous, clever, charming, inspiring and moving. We love these kids (and their teacher!).

“When I’m gone, when I’m gone, you know you’re going to miss me when I’m gone” is sung over  images of a remote place – the Berens River First Nation is 275km north of Winnipeg – that includes a landscape of broken down cars and decay on the reserve as well as and beautiful waterfront and dense woods.
