Word! Interdisciplinary Artist Monk E is at it again. This is not the first appearance he’s made in my blogs and it definitely won’t be the last cause I’m is loving his work. 2012 has a been a particularly good year for Monk.E as freestyle poet, MC and visual artist. I mean if you were in Montreal this summer you must’ve at least caught one of his performances during the Francofolies with the K6A and Alaclair Ensemble Fam or maybe you caught a glimpse of his live painting exhibition during the Jazz Festival or maybe you made your way to one of the knowledge-hop event series he’s organized or better yet maybe you experienced his exceptionally eloquent improv poetry at one of the epic Kalmunity nights during the Jazz Fest. Needless to say that Monk.E has really been making his mark in the city.
Now if you jog your memory a little, you’ll remember that back in February that Monk.E dropped an absolutely insane single and video called ‘Voir ton Soul‘ ft. Sola and produced by KenLo. (This baby was on our rotation every week for like 2 months!) Now the single was supposed to be a teaser for the New album Monk.E and KenLo were working on called ‘Destin et Beyond’ due to release ____???____ . Yup till about last week no one knew when this Masterpiece was gonna release but Ladies and Gentleman i have a date for you!!! Pull out your calendars and make a big bright star on October 18th 2012. Its going down at Les Bobards as 9pm. Our fav fellas CeasRock and Markings will warming up the floor for him and he will also be unveiling 17 of his new art pieces. It’s gonna be a guaranteed epic night.
Need more convincing? Well MonkE and KenLo taught they’d hook you up with a little teaser. Enjoy!
