About this show

Humble The Poet is a Toronto-bred MC and spoken word artist whose work embodies the changing nature and resilience of one of the world's most diverse cities. From his appearance to the myriad of topics and taboos addressed in his work, he introduces a critical viewpoint to Hip Hop's landscape. In 2008, Humble the Poet (aka Kanwer Singh) began releasing independently recorded tracks and videos on Youtube. By early 2009, he had launched thepoetproject.com, a space to share his works, and those of others that inspire him. He has toured North America, UK and India in addition to being featured in numerous publications and major hip hop web sites including MTV Iggy, Rolling Stone, World Star Hip Hop, Allhiphop, and 2dopeboyz. He is now working to establish his Believe Me Music Imprint under Major Label for 2012. He is joined onstage by young, London-based spoken word artists. These include Naga, a 17-year-old producer and lyricist from East London and a regular performer both in his local community and across London, from the Baishakhi Mela to the Underage Festival to Club 93 Feet East. Recently, he performed at Tate Britain and at 'My Golden Bangla' alongside the Asian Dub Foundation.
