With an American hip hop artist Wordsmith one of Riga & # 39; s most vibrant cultural venues – Kalnciema Street Quarter, which promises different styles, including jazz, rock and even experimental music nights.
Hip hop artist Wordsmith comes from Baltimore USA on the east coast. Although the musician emphasizes that he writes well in other genres, the hippo is still his first love. Latvia is one of the stopping points for his concert tour. Together with concerts Wordsmith master classes also offer.
"We have been in Latvia for a few days and have organized several workshops for young people. One of the first was the musical workshop" Against Violence ", there was also a workshop on the history of hip hop – children learned to write songs, a drum set, try out keyboard instruments and choreography, Wordsmith.
Thursday Wordsmith performed on Kalnciema Quarter, on Friday the reporter can meet in Jelgava, but on Saturday in Rezekne.
"The concert will include a broad spectrum of hippos. I write both hip and hip hop, political and intentional hip hop, and inspiring and motivating hip hop, so I'd say you'll hear a good hip hop collection," Wordsmith explains.
Together with the Wordsmith version, the open-air competition season of Kalnciema Quarter was opened. In warm weather, a broad cultural program is expected here.
"Called on Wednesday street food, of course we listen to music on Thursdays. This year there will be some legends again, for example, there will be "Ladezer", "Eolika" is always in high demand, then there will be several guests from America, from Denmark, from the Netherlands, from Belgium. Moreover, we have grown even bigger and are waiting for you at the Agenskalns market, and there, together with market activities, we have Friday nights where all kinds of things will be eaten, music and cinema, "says Kalnciema Creative Director Una.
