Eekwol’s Rhythm and Rap Show ft. Lindsay Knight. Grades 6, 7 & 8
Series: LIVE Arts
Lindsay “Eekwol” Knight has been creating and performing hip hop music for many years. As an Indigenous artist, she draws on life experiences and collective histories within her work. As a mother she embraces the teachings of living in a good way for future generations. Eekwol engages schools in this knowledge and encourages them to reflect on their own understanding of “a good life” and then build these concepts and themes in the process of creative hip hop lyric writing. Through dance breaks, beat and rhythm identification and interactive step by step lyric writing, the kids access their creativity in a unique and powerful way.
