Ep. 4- Belize's Music Industry |Tun Up Di Ting ft HipHopBze

We're launching a new series, one dedicated to one of my favourite collectives, our artists! It's called 'Tun Up Di Ting' and its where we get to find out a bit more about the people behind the written, audio and visual art we love so much! To open this series, I invited Constantine Enriquez from Hip Hop Bze to chat a bit about the Music Industry in Belize. Do we even have one? Where are we and what do we need to do to advance this sector of the creative industry? Waggy and I tackle it head-on and we're 100% sure that this won't be our final talk about the space. Find out what up and coming artist I am currently binging on!  I close the podcast with a snippet one of my favourite interviews by Chronixx. The interview was done by Colors alongside Maverick Sabre when they were releasing their collab on the song 'Her Grace.' Find that song here: Done in honour of Et Dan and Mr. Program. Fly High!

Ep. 3- Melting Pot of Racism

Belize is touted as a tranquil nation but quite often raging under that flourishing shade is deep-seated racism, residual of colonialism. I wanted to talk about it just as a little introduction as this will be a recurring theme throughout the life of this podcast. I brought some friends along too! Rolando Caballero, an International Relations Student at University of the West Indies Mona; Musa Ash Abdul Shaeed, cultural activist and youth artist ambassador to CARIFESTA and Bryton Codd, athlete and co-founder of BK Sports; they all join on to share comments about their experience of living in a country that largely rejects its racist thread as a figment of the imagination and navigating a world a cross-road with imperialism. I also included a clip of a Belizean mind that is I think one of our treasures in the decolonization project. I listen to this clip quite often as a reminder of the bigger picture, a reinforcement of my 'why.' Make sure you listen to the end to be inspired and called to action!
