Video: Hmong (and Minnesota) hip-hop heritage in the New York Times

This is amusing. A New York Times video segment about Minnesota Hmong rapper Tou Saiko Lee. Lee raps about his Laotian heritage, and what it’s like to live in Minnesota. HILARIOUS: I saw Delicious Venom do a spoken word thing at the Loft many years back. They sounded a little green then, so it’s good to see that they’ve kept pushing and gained greater recognition.

Update: The embedded video isn’t loading (apologies), so click through (highly recommended).

Video: Playing the cucumber trumpet

That is NOT a euphemism.

The listenerd loves food-based musicianship, the cucumber trumpet being no small exception. See previously: Vienna Vegetable Orchestra and Tomato Quintet. This song is “March of Bee.”
