This event is "a coming together of rapso artists (past and present) to have a dynamic conversation about significant moments and movements in the history of this genre. ."
- Patricia van Leeuwaarde Moonsammy
Patricia van Leeuwaarde Moonsammy is an Assistant Professor of Africana Studies at Dickinson College, where she teaches courses on the African Diaspora and the Caribbean. Trained as an anthropologist, her scholarly work focuses on the intersections of performance, activism and identity politics in the Caribbean. Adding to material from interviews she has conducted with artists over the past 8 years, she hopes the event would offer a more dynamic conversation between artists and highlight significant moments and movements in the history of this genre. Those expected in attendance are Brother Resistance, 3Canal, Ataklan, Ozy Merrique, Gillian Moor, Sista Ava, Brother Book, and other members of the Rapso community.
