Video of the Week: What’s Next | Ottawa Music

By Apartment613 on March 2, 2022

Ottawa is quickly establishing itself internationally as a hotbed for new music industry talent, behind the mic and behind the scenes. In “What’s Next | Ottawa Music”, local filmmaker Baininwa Amissi (Dope Quality Productions) looks at how the local hip-hop scene is leading the charge, creating new spaces, partnerships and opportunities that extend to support artists and creatives beyond a single genre or art form.

Amissi also looks at how local leaders and collectives translated this challenge into opportunities for themselves and others, profiling emerging artists Joe Gez and Carter Hickey, as well as two new spaces for music production and creativity: the Real House of Ensemble and the Ottawa-Gatineau Afro-Black Cultural Centre.
