About this Event

Women in Hip Hop - Opening Reception Showcase

Ear Appeal presents Women In Hip Hop: Historic accounts, interactive galleries and live performances, addressing the past, present and progressive future of the Female MC. Featuring live performances, video presentations, art, imagery, and a panel discussion that challenges the traditional role of women within the male dominated space of hip hop. Exploring the intersecting experiences of race, sexuality, ability and gender, The Ear Appeal Project reforms harmful social norms and ideologies through authentic storytelling and advocacy using the medium of sound, music and complimentary artistic expressions to provide opportunities for overlooked and underrepresented artists.

She is a radiant light, and a messenger who raises awareness by being a voice for multiple communities across the globe. Her performances not only include festivals, showcases and concerts but weddings and restaurants as well.

Keysha Fresh dubbed “Hip Hops kid sister” blends everything you love about the 90’s with everything you appreciate about Hip Hop. she has recorded 4 EP’s and one group album with hip hop girl group, The Sorority. Keysha has shared stages with artist such as; Joey Bad a$$, Miguel, Drake, Snoop Dogg, Jidenna, The Internet, DVSN, Main Source, Dan Hill, MC Lyte, Smif-N-Wessun, A TRAK, Cassidy, Ghostface and many more.

Sydanie Nichol is media communications graduate of Toronto’s Humber College and rap supermom focused on shifting the landscape by continuing to push female voices to the forefront. Born to Jamaican and Trinidadian parents in Toronto’s Jane and Finch neighborhood, her music is as political as it is club-ready, tackling the complexities surrounding her identity as a queer single mother from one of the city’s most vilified areas.

Dijah SB is a female rapper who has been making quiet noise for almost seven years. Initially as a part of the rap duo Class of 93 before going solo and switching things up. Though it’d be easy to label her one of Toronto’s best and brightest, in reality she’s a humble, passionate artist who wants Toronto’s hip-hop community win, especially women. Which, to be frank. is long overdue. She was recently selected to rap on BET's "Freestyle Friday". She has been com­pared to a dynamic range of artists from Missy Elliott to Lauryn Hill.

Dynesti Williams in­spires peo­ple to re­con­nect to their higher selves through bold and un­apolo­getic live per­for­mances, lyrics, videos, and sonic ex­pe­ri­ences. She is known as a fierce en­ter­tainer from Toronto ON, Canada with a contagious energy that can raise the vi­bra­tion of any space she performs in.
