Just in... seriously... one of the best nights this summer! (for me)

Comments from others:
Véronique Bégin : Seriously one of the best night of my life... The show was absolutely awesome and I've met a whole bunch of really cool people mixed with already dear friends ;) I will never regret this to be my first Nomadic Massive experience! Afro Latin Soul, a great concept, keep up the good work. Can't wait to see the pictures of tonight...

Hi again,

Many comments keep piling in about Friday Afro Latin Soul and I wanted to publicly ask that you send them directly to LOU PIENSA (& cc me)

About Lou
Active in the international Hip Hop scene for over 10 years, Lou Piensa has been involved in many aspects of the movement including radio, music production, performance and events organisation. He has shared the stage with such artists as Common, Dead Prez, Tony Touch, K'Naan, Jean Grey, Foreign Beggars and more. Since the year 2000,he has been living in the Cote-des-Neiges neigborhood of Montreal, Canada. A trilingual MC (English, French and Spanish), Lou also has a decade long tie with the Cuban Hip Hop scene, particularely with the pioneering duo Obsesion ( In 2004, he helped initiate the creation of Nomadic Massive, a multilingual and eclectic live Hip Hop crew ( with whom he has been making noise both as an MC and producer. His nomadic childhood (Lou was born in France and grew up in Ecuador, Algeria, Canada and Cuba) has given him an ability to adapt with ease and it has fueled his international vision of Hip Hop culture. His production reflects an eclectic musical upbringing, finding inspiration in the rythms from the world over. When he is not teaching English to high school kids, he can be found cooking, making beats, learning portuguese and writing rhymes in preparation for travelling the world with music. Ahi na'ma'!

Also make sure to follow them in New York in October for the AFRO LATIN SOUL Pt.2

If you liked what you saw with those collective... be sure to follow their solo carreers as well (non exhaustive list)

Another note worthy cause "Adult Literacy in Canada" a cause I've supported for many years and will again partake as Montréal/Québec rep for the 6th National RANDOM ACTS OF POETRY, please support one local AMAZING project that deals with Youth Literacy through Hip Hop.
