More about the Artists:

A derivation of the Sanskrit word Karma, suggesting fate or destiny, where one’s selected actions determine his or her own future. Karmacy’s four members – Swap, Sammy Chand, Nimo and KB – decided to take fate into their own hands, by taking the artform of Hip Hop, which has been transformed by the commercialization of the industry behind it, and bringing it back to the days of pure expression. Using Hip Hop as a medium through which they communicate their thoughts, Karmacy transcends typical perceptions and ideologies appealing to music listeners in all corners of the world. Check out their music on: www.karmacy.com

West coast hip hop artist, Kiwi, recognized as one of hip hop's emerging artists, engages audiences and fellow DJs alike with his raw, creative energy. His work earned him recognition in in the documentary film 'Beats, Rhymes, & Resistance: Pilipinos and Hip Hop in L.A.' His work is distinguished by the influence of community activism in his music and he also helped start Balagtasan Collective, a group of Filipino artists who
organize events and workshops to raise community awareness and catalyze social change.
