VIDEO: Why Glad As Knives Hide Behind the Masks

RPM caught up with electronic rappers Glad As Knives at the Skateploitation III thrown by Apache Skateboards.

Santa Fe duo, Ginger and Cannupa, have been on the scene for a number of years. This artistic couple lead a few other lives at least, with Hawaiian artist Ginger Dunnill also performing as DJ and producer under her own name and Shark Siren. Her partner in crime, Cannupa Hanska Luger, (Mandan Hidatsa Arikara) is a solo artist who paints, draws, sculpts, writes poetry – basically whatever he can get his hands on.

They were also part of a Native art collective, The Humble, that worked mostly with live art and installations.

These two have mashed their art and their minds to form the masked musical duo known as Glad As Knives. RPM has the exclusive on why they hide behind the masks.

Interviewed at Eggman and Walrus Art Emporium.
