“Montreal hip-hop’s best kept secret!” - CBC”

“Nomadic Massive provide a truly multicultural listening experience.” Exclaim!

:A “multi-lingual, multi-cultural, supergroup” (that) blew my mind with their powerful hip-hop/R&B/soul performance that spoke to heavy social issues,” BeatRoute

Nomadic Massive raps and sings in English, French, Creole, Spanish and Arabic. This Montreal based multilingual crew has always pushed its message past all borders. Since its inception in 2004, the collective has had the opportunity to share the stage with top notch artists all around the world, providing an action-packed show, where the crowd is an integral part of the concert.

NOMADIC MASSIVE has several recordings to its credit including the EP Nomad's Land (2005), the mixtape Supafam (2012), a homonymous EP (2013). Their most recent album, The Big Band Theory, launched in June 2016 on the label Coop Les Faux-Monnayeurs, is a hit amongst fans and critics.

NOMADIC MASSIVE is an incredible stage behemoth that has seen a fascinating evolution since its inception. With performances around the globe ranging from the Vancouver International Jazz Festival in British Columbia to the Rudolstadt Festival in Germany, by way of the Festival International de Louisiane and the Grand Performances in Los Angeles, the band has made its mark as an essential Canadian band. The collective delivers an unbounded hip-hop that skilfully combines live instrumentation with sampling and a wide range of vocals.

Originating in Victoria, BC, the awesome 17-piece collective of funk, soul, hip hop, r&b musicians that make up The Leg-Up Program are a force to be reckoned with! At times, they are a soul band with raspy lead vocals and beautifully sculpted harmonies; at times, they are a funk band with wild horn lines and groovy bass and drums; at times they are a hip hop group with catchy hooks and solid beats; and at times, they are sweet and sultry, keeping the audience fully engaged with the slowest of ballads. Amongst it all, is a group of people who simply love to make music and inspire others to do get up, dance and become a part of all the fun! They don't skimp on musicality either. Each one is a talented musician and their original material stays with you like any hit song. It's safe to say, this band has it all. This instant party band works hard and it shows.
