Exactly 10 years ago this June, Toronto was a battleground. The G20 had just invaded the city, with the leaders of the world’s largest economies meeting behind fortified fences to discuss pillaging the world. Outside were thousands of us, there to crash the meeting.
The massive demos, and some rioting that followed, gave way to the largest mass arrest in Canadian history. Two of those people arrested were our guests on the program today, Testament and Illogik of the long-standing anarchist hip-hop duo Test Their Logik. They join us to reflect on the history of their group, the 10 year anniversary of the G20, and their new album “See”.
Welcome back to another episode of The Rebel Beat! This episode is reminiscent of the old format of this show, 2 hours of live radio, done at our beloved CKUT radio in Montreal during a residency Aaron was doing for the Montreal Sessions.
Our special guest on the program is one of Egypt’s top studio guitarists and rebel musicians, Weka Soliman. You’ll definitely be hearing more about Weka’s story in the weeks to come on this show, but for now, enjoy this episode as he guides us through Egypt’s vast world of underground music.
