The Live Mixtape, featuring Cadence Weapon
The Live Mixtape is a program of live music and public engagement that brings together a group of established and emerging prairie hip hop artists. Through collaboration, conversation and performances, the artists will reflect on the development of a vibrant music culture that explores the specificities and complexities of place, inherited histories, and Black experience on the prairies.
The program considers the latent political dimension of regional music and the ways hip hop music forms subjectivity, builds community and forges solidarity across geographical and cultural differences.

The Live Mixtape is conceived and organized by emcee, educator and workshop facilitator, Elliot Walsh (Nestor Wynrush). First presented in Winnipeg, Walsh has worked in collaboration with Remai Modern to present a new iteration featuring guest artists Cadence Weapon, Odario Williams, Chimwemwe Undi, Andrew Sannie, and Marisolle Negash with local artists, Eekwol, Zhe the Free, The Northwest Kid and other local contributors.
In the weeks leading up to the public events, the artists will work with Walsh to stimulate creative exchange and foster new artistic collaborations culminating in the performance of new works at The Live Mixtape.
The evening concludes with a 30-minute solo set by Cadence Weapon, winner of the 2021 Polaris Music Prize, followed by an afterparty DJed by Odario.
Live Mixtape is presented in collaboration with Synonym Sound, Winnipeg.
