Renowned World Hip-Hop Ensemble and Cultural Community Arts Collective Audiopharmacy represents the power of Love, Music, and Collective Liberation. Spawned from its roots in Hip Hop, Audiopharmacy creates timeless music and art beyond any one genre. The ensemble is made up of multi-cultural creatives with roots indigenous to Turtle Island (North America), Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands, South America, India and Europe. Their unique sound is eclectic + avant-garde, yet rooted in the voice of the people and Mama Earth. By intricately fusing turntablism, live instrumentation, global musical styles, poetic lyricism, and indigenous prayers, Audiopharmacy elevates the meaning, sound, and purpose of Hip Hop.
Internationally, the ensemble has taken the stage at festivals, concert halls, clubs, cultural centers, orphanages, schools, and events in Canada, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Holland, France, the UK, Japan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Samoa, New Zealand (Aotearoa), Fiji, the Solomon Islands, Ecuador, Morocco, Oman, Cyprus and Tanzania. Domestically, Audiopharmacy has performed throughout the US.
Audiopharmacy has also toured as music/cultural ambassadors globally, and has successfully fostered cross-cultural understanding by leading community engagements, music and cultural workshops, film showings/Q+ A, and intimate jam sessions. On March 19, 2013, the band received a Mayoral Proclamation from the City & County of San Francisco for artistic excellence, the promotion of cross-cultural understanding abroad, and representing the values of the San Francisco Bay Area.
So grateful for FNX, KVCR, and NPR for giving us the opportunity to discuss what indigeneity means to us, our new projects, and the importance of representation in mass media.
