Power Women: The Rise of Female Rappers

With her painfully public feuds, love for explicit language, and controversial past, Afro-Latina rapper Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, better known as Cardi B, may not be considered as an ideal role model for young women by the general public. Nevertheless, the 26-year old New Yorker just made history; at the 61st annual Grammy Awards earlier this year, Cardi B won the category “Best Rap Album” for her 2018 release “Invasion of Privacy,” making her the first female solo artist to ever achieve this. Role model or not, Cardi B’s win marks an important milestone in the history and continuous rise of female rap.

Alexandre Désilets | Programmateur invité | Février 2019

Alexandre Désilets est certainement l’une des voix les plus imposantes par son infini tendresse. Il est un mélodiste sensible qui sait créer une poésie moderne avec des mots savamment choisis. L’auteur-compositeur-interprète a fait vibrer le public plus d’une fois avec ses albums qu’Escalader l’ivresse (2008), La Garde (2010), Fancy Ghetto (2014) et Windigo (2016). Ce dernier lui a valu deux Félix au gala de l’ADISQ 2017. Son inspiration s’enracine dans toutes les possibilités qu’offre le corps, le cœur et l’esprit.
