▷ LIL K HPB | Hip-Hop, afrobeat (Burundi)


Originally from Burundi, Karagira Owen Berel, better known as “LIL K HPB” is a young rapper and songwriter. His passion for rap began at the age of 10 when he rapped in the streets with his friends. It was in 2015, when he moved to Rwanda that he formed “HPB” with T-Point. In 2018, he released his very first single: Seen. In 2019, he launched his first EP of 7 tracks : Game of songs. Finally, in 2020, he introduced his first album Confusing Solutions and moved to Montreal for his solo career. His track LaLa released in 2021 is the most famous track of his discography. He is one of the most promising young talents in the musical industry of the East African diaspora.



▷ ABONDANCE | Electro-Caribbean (Guadeloupe, Martinique)


Abondance is an electro-Caribbean project that aims to be unifying, multicultural and accessible to all. The artistic concept mixes the sounds of the “islands” with the sounds of the “city” by including sounds from the West Indies in electro music, and conversely, by adding West Indian rhythms and colors to electronic music. This musical project tells the story of anyone who has left their rural home to settle in a new urban environment until they reach affluence.  “Our influences are multiple but we can retain Patrick Saint Eloi, Eugene Mona, Kaytranada, Lane8, Darius and Disclosure.” The style oscillates between traditional Caribbean music like Zouk, Gwo Ka, Carnival and mixes with House, Pop, Dance/Electronic and even funk.



LA TRIBU SALSA BAND I Salsa Brava (Latin America) 


La Tribu Salsa Band was born from the communion of several Latin rhythms that they are passionate about, mainly the “Salsa Brava”. La Tribu made its debut 1 year and a half ago, and have been able to participate in several shows in small groups. Their goals are to be able to share their instruments on stages with bigger notoriety and to contribute to the influence of Montreal by attracting  Afro-Latin music fans.
