Episode #75: Osani Balkaran
supporting local programs, collaborations, indigenous art AND MORE•
This week we cut deep with Osani Balkaran, rapper The O.B. and Studio 393 instructor. As one of the many amazing shows for the wall to wall mural festival, The O.B. will be performing songs from his debut album at the ballroom. Osani tells us about his collaborative and learning processes, themes on his album, and how his mom and local artist Moneca St Clair inspires his artistic freedom. Osani has been rapping since the age of 13 and we even convinced him to share the first chorus he ever wrote (what an amazing memory!) Have a listen and don’t sleep on “Nevereverville” & W2W this Friday, September 13.
