Algonquin French rap and Innu Montagnais singing reggae…IN CUBA?!
Yes indeed—straight of Pikogan, in the Québec region of Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Algonquin MC Samian brings his Indigenous or Autochtonous sound, a fresh edge and high-quality video production to his hip-hop style.
Partnered with Shauit, an Innu reggae singer from the native reserve Maliotenam, a few miles from Sept-Îles on the North Shore of Quebec, Samian brings you another captivating video—this one filmed on location in beautiful Cuba.
The song “So Much” is the latest single from Samian’s album Face à la Musique, mends Samian’s razor sharp hip-hop stylings with Shauit’s reggae chops in a colourful and much needed change in scenery for Indigenous Hiphop.
Released in early June, this video should warm you up to the new summer heat now radiating out of the Northeast Coast.
