Nantali "IAmBlackGirl" Indongo - Musician / Educator
Musician / Journalist / Educator
When Nantali Indongo a.ka. Tali a.k.a IamBlackgirl a.k.a Taliwah revealed to herself that her passion for Hip Hop and performance could no longer remain a vivid memory of her childhood and teenage years, she joined Montreal Hip Hop band Nomadic Massive in 2005(www.nomadicmassive.com).
Now an emcee-vocalist, Tali has rocked the mic across North America, and the globe, dropping rapid-fire rhymes in English or Caribbean patois; lacing tracks on the 3 of the band’s 5 studio recorded albums and mixtapes, and now preparing the next Nomadic album as well as a solo project called “Fiyah in Yuh Belly”. On her unavoidable musical journey, Taliwah loads her backpack with a rhyme-book, a Nano, anecdotes from life as a frontline community worker and journalist, the history of Caribbean immigrant parents and the complex identity of a Canadian-Caribbean-Montrealer who knows about the hype of the first ParticipAction initiative and the havoc of Quebec in 1995. So while carrying the torch of a storytelling tradition onto stages and into studios, with master's tools and microphones; into classrooms and communities; Taliwah wants to expose to educate and rhyme to rouse, so that the top tips over and humbles itself while the bottom sees the booby traps and makes an educated move.
