Biographies

The Halluci Nation

Canada’s Halluci Nation are an acclaimed electronic DJ collective known for their genre-bending mix of hip-hop, reggae, dubstep, and First Nations musical traditions. Formed in 2007, the group showcases the talents of DJs Ian "DJ NDN" Campeau of the Nipissing First Nation, Bear Witness of the Cayuga First Nation, and Tim "2oolman" Hill, Mohawk, of the Six Nations of the Grand River (who replaced Dan "DJ Shub" General, Mohawk, of the Six Nations of the Grand River in 2014). 

After recording several EPs, the group officially debuted in 2012 with their full-length self-titled album, which found the trio longlisted for the Polaris Music Prize. Their sophomore effort, 2013's Nation II Nation, also made it onto the Polaris shortlist, finishing in the final ten. That same year, the band took home Best Group and Best Album at the Aboriginal People's Choice Music Awards. The following year, they garnered even more attention after taking home the Juno Award for Breakthrough Album of the Year. In 2016, Halluci Nation returned with their third full-length album, We Are the Halluci Nation, featuring guest appearances from rapper Yasiin Bey, Indigenous Canadian drum group Black Bear, Australia's OKA, and others.

Kama La Mackerel is a Montréal-based Mauritian-Canadian multidisciplinary artist, educator, writer, community-arts facilitator and literary translator who works within and across performance, photography, installations, textiles, digital art and literature. Kama’s work is grounded in the exploration of justice, love, healing, decoloniality, hybridity, cosmopolitanism and self- and collective-empowerment. They believe that aesthetic practices have the power to build resilience and act as resistance to the status quo, thereby enacting an anticolonial praxis through cultural production. Kama has exhibited and performed their work internationally and their writing in English, French and Mauritian Kreol has appeared in publications both online and in print.

Her practice has developed around concepts of production and circulation of the signs that constitute our present-day ruins. Bourdua holds a BFA from UQAM and a graduate degree from Villa Arson in France. She is involved in Montréal’s cultural milieu, notably as a cultural mediator and member of Centre CLARK.

Moridja Kitenge Banza

Moridja Kitenge Banza

Moridja is a multidisciplinary artist of Congolese origin who draws us into his net from the first notes of his voice. His music is a perfect blend of R&B, soul, reggae and reggaeton, over a sound of Congolese rumba.
