Tonight at 9pm on Je Suis TBA: Marshia Celina- Rapper/ Performance Artist

Marshia Celina is a performing artist & writer. Her latest project Reality Rap: The Digital Tape explores our inner struggles with capitalism, race, gender, and our complicated relationships with rap through a sonic catalogue reminiscent of the nineties.  It's not just her content that is intriguing, but her flow & style is consistent and clear throughout her work. It pays homage to classic hip hop sounds that influenced her early years. Mars proves in her work that we can be critical without criticizing and that we all have some self work to do.

As it officially returns for a third consecutive season on Concordia's own, and Montreal's underground radio, your weekly journey is packed with goodies - from personal mix tapes, audio diaries, surreal soundscapes, artist profiles, and even a crash course on basic Japanese for the studious folks out there.
