A truly multicultural outfi t (Maltese, Macedonian, Indian, Maori, and Pakistani), Curse ov Dialect also proudly claim their roots in Keilor Downs, Altona Meadows, Macleod, Torquay and St Kilda.
Their political raps, razor-sharp writing, unique fl ows, and standout production accurately represents their knowledge of hip-hop as world music. Curse ov Dialect’s live show combines unrelenting energy, fine tuned execution, and jaw-dropping costumes to create a one-of-a-kind concert experience that tears the hip-hop rulebook to pieces.
Supporting Curse ov Dialect is solo hip hop artist Ivens, (David Coen) an enigmatic young rapper with a penchant for the strange, esoteric and the slightly left of centre, both in music, on stage and his day-to-day life.
