World Cultures Festival 2019: “Signmark: Impossible is My Thing”
3 November @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Equality and inclusiveness for those with disabilities power the amazing rap/hip-hop originated by Signmark, a global pop phenomenon who was also born deaf. The first non-hearing artist signed to a major record label, Signmark has taken his exhilarating music and message to almost 50 countries and six continents. Sensing the beat with his feet, the Finnish pioneer signs his penetrating lyrics while his musical collaborator vocalises the words.
Defying discrimination and discouragement, Signmark delivers an inspiring challenge to stereotypes and convention, with his resounding “can-do” spirit, energising rap, and commitment to change. Prepare to be blown away!
