Welcome back to the latest episode of The Rebel Beat podcast!
Our special guest on the show this month is Dio Ganhdih! Dio Ganhdih is a queer Indigenous MC, with roots in Awkwesasne Mohawk territory, and now based in NYC. She’s part of the epic Revolutions Per Minute family, and spits absolute fire on the mic. Check her out!
In our Turn It Up segment, we look at artists who are standing alongside Palestinians, both in Palestine and in the diaspora. Check out the initiative of Montreal-based artists in solidarity with Palestinian refugee Omar Ben-Ali. www.tadamon.ca/omar
