One of the first beat makers to mix powwow and hip-hop/EDM, Kinnie Starr’s tribal beats will send you to the dance floor with hard-hitting lyrics delivered in a sing-song hip-hop style. Effortlessly moving between hip-hop, folk, spoken word and EDM with rhythmic grace, the Calgary-born, French-German-Irish-Mohawk artist uses her artistic platform to speak about race and gender politics and protecting the waters.
