“My slam and music worlds are already very much inspired by the Universe of Edouard Glissant. So when Street Art for Mankind, a great non-profit who promotes art for social change, offered me to join the Tout-Monde Festival created by the French Embassy and France Florida Foundation, I was thrilled. The trio Urban Performance should be a true experience. To perform along such talented artists like Ronald and Stephon and to inspire the public to make our world a better one is something I cannot wait for. I truly believe that art can make a difference.” – Black Kalagan
