About the Performers

Intikana (Photo by Sandra Guzman)DJ Perly 1IMG_1547© Marisol Diaz, 2015. Pepatian at Hostos, Rapping and Riffin In The Bronx, Caridad De La Luz (La BRuja) and Nene Ali with Desmar Guevara and DJ DP One, at Hostos in The Bronx, Oct. 30, 2015.

INTIKANA is an artist, educator, and filmmaker. He has been featured on VH1 and toured across the United States, Canada, Cuba, Borikén (Puerto Rico), Costa Rica, Guatemala, Ecuador, Peru, Colombia, Tanzania, and Uganda, East Africa while sharing the stage with artists such as KRS-One, Immortal Technique, Jay Electronica, Raekwon, Afrika Bambaataa, Talib Kweli, Lupe Fiasco, The Last Poets, Dead Prez, and more. Intikana is also the recipient of The Bronx Council On The Arts’ BRIO (Bronx Recognizes Its Own) award for Excellence in Performing Arts. As a youth mentor and teaching artist, Intikana has spoken at hundreds of universities/colleges, high schools, elementary/middle schools, community centers, group homes, shelters, and prison facilities. He has worked with countless community organizations to provide innovative educational opportunities for youth through hip hop and social/cultural awareness.

DJ Perly is a female Puerto Rican Russian DJ who plays hip hop, Breaks, House music, and practices the art of turntablism with a passion. She has competed in The NYC DMC DJ Battles and is currently a 3x Freestyle Mondays DJ Battle Champion. DJ Perly is also a current member of the first Latino rocking crew, The Bronx Boys / Bronx Girls Rocking Crew, and also works with local artists who share the same love and passion for all things music.

DJ Soul Buck aka Mr. Street Sickness spins at various locations in Philadelphia such as Trocadero, The Khyber, and many more. He has taken his talents around the United States and recently Canada as a tour DJ for Digable Planets. You will be entertained when you’re listening to Mr. Street Sickness’ love for craft on the 1’s and 2′s! He will be playing Latin American-infused tunes you can dance to during Noche de Carnaval.

NENE ALI is a young spoken word poet and has a passion for the healing power of words and the ability to deliver mind-blowing performances. Nene has become a headline artist and performed at many venues throughout the northeast and midwestern United States. She captures her audience with a certain magical force all her own. The youngest recipient of Miami Heat Dwayne Wade “Keeper of the Village Award” and “Nelson Mandela Community Activist Award” Nene’s activism is attached to her art. After each performance she gets nothing less than a standing ovation and walks away with the inspiration to continue to make this world a better place! Nene recently performed as part of the Young Roots Performance Series at Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture (co-produced with Pepatian, October 2015) with poet Caridad De La Luz/La Bruja.
