You cannot change another human being. Think how hard it is to change yourself! And even if you could, you would only bring them away from their purpose – changing themselves.
We can, however, provide help on physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual levels. We can attempt to influence others in ways we think would benefit them. We can try to act in a manner and make decisions that would serve as a positive role model.
But we must navigate the razor’s edge between teaching and preaching. Teachings means sharing your wisdom out of love and care, not because you want to convert or convince or coerce.
Montreal’s own Nomadic Massive has firmly established itself as a group of premier performers and skilled musicians representing an open-minded Hip-Hop which finds its inspiration in the traditions of the past; combining live instrumentation, samples, and a wide array of vocal styles. This multilingual, multicultural, super-group has become synonymous with energetic and crowd-moving live shows. The group has also left its mark internationally; initiating socio-cultural exchanges with like-minded artists. Functioning somewhat as ambassadors, Nomadic continues to redefine what Hip-Hop can achieve on a global level. As the group's ongoing explorations open up new ways to interpret a musical style that has traditionally been marginalized, the “more” that has always existed in the Hip-Hop movement is revealed in everything that is Nomadic Massive.
