Shankhini & Ndidi Cascade Canadian Music Week 2004 March 3 to 6, Toronto ON

These two Vancouver-based MCs brought differing yet complementary styles to the stage during their set. Performing songs alternately and ending with a collaborative track, Shankhini’s energetic stage presence was accentuated by the positive vibes in her singing and MCing, while Ndidi Cascade’s ridiculously quicksilver and seemingly effortless rhyme flow ensured she made a very impressive showing.
