A really cool night of music to kick off 4 days of festive holiday nights at the Northern!
The Hip Hop Hippies began forming in 2012 after Parab Poet began including alternate instruments into his hip hop music... starting with only live percussion accompanying the poet and 'DJ Chaps', and evolving into a beautiful array of musical instrumentalists including a groovy bassist, a vibey violinist, a mandolin & glockenspiel guitarist, a low end soul drummer, a percussionist from the future, a snare cymbal specialist, and a touch of trumpet... these alternate instruments mixed with a turntablist and an emcee has created something quite unique and flavourful featuring organic acoustic live hip hop with a twist of experimental folk rap.
Making quite a buzz in their home city, Parab Poet and the HipHop Hippes have played many a show in the last 12 months including the 2014 Saskatchewan Jazz Festival and other festival dates in the neighbouring provinces of Alberta & British Columbia. Something to definitely check out! Poised for the next step, this band of hippies is preparing to play shows and entertain crowds with their positive vibes and happy faces...
