Hip hop was born and grew up in denser urban areas: places like New York City, Atlanta, and Los Angeles.
But Caleb May developed his passion for the genre, honed his writing and flow, and acquired his own fan base growing up here in Northeast Indiana, in the town of Waterloo.
Known as Kidd Dash, he caught the attention of H.Y.P.E. Magazine, and he and his team recently wrapped up their run as part of the Hype Nation Tour.
For Bob Roetz of Wooden Nickel Records and Morrison Agen of Neat Neat Neat Records, both in Fort Wayne, music is a passion and a profession.
As we say goodbye to 2013, we wanted to take a quick look back at some of the year's music and get their opinions on some of the best.
WBOI’s Julia Meek recently invited Roetz and Agen to the Madge Rothschild Studios to talk about the best music of the year: some popular, some obscure, and a few local picks, as well.
The International Day of Peace is Saturday, September 20th, and Fort Wayne musicians are commemorating the occasion with a special, Midwest premier of Karl Jenkins' The Peacemakers.
The show includes the Heartland Chamber Chorale, Heartland Festival Chorus and Orchestra, and the Fort Wayne Children's Choir singing the words of some of history's great peace advocates.
WBOI's Julia Meek sat down with the Chorale's Maestro, Robert Nance, and soloist, Lori Sandstrom, to find out more about The Peacemakers.
