[ISEA2012] Artist Statement: Kwende Kefentse – DJ Memetric

Artist Statement

Born and raised in the west end of the Greater Toronto Area, Memetric was steeped in the tradition of the city’s great DeeJays, music “knowledgists” and Hip Hop “culturattis”. While deeply influenced by his Caribbean background and Toronto’s  international-but-perennially-mixed-up culture, it was Hip Hop that helped him connect the dots between styles, sounds and people on the dance floor.

  • Kwende Kefentse works as the Cultural Industries Development Officer at the City of Ottawa (Canada), in an award-winning Cultural Development and Initiatives team.
