Mykki Blanco

There is no way to stick a label on this hero.

The American rapper, performer, poet and activist Mykki Blanco made quite a stir in the music world with his razor-sharp debut Mykki Blanco & the Mutant Angels. The standard-bearer of the queer hip-hop scene in New York loves to break through taboos, stereotypes and prejudices. His work is experimental, rock-hard, unique, but above all, stoneware. Groundbreaking good even. He has started a worldwide conversation and amazes everyone with intense shows full of filthy hip-hop. Expect a moshpit guaranteed politically engaged show at Welcome to The Village. You want to be here, believe us.
