Brampton rapper, singer and dancer Derin Falana will be performing at Manifesto 11 on June 10 at Echo Beach. 

Falana, who is known for his quirky personality, unique voice, catchy melodies and clever lyrics, recently released a compilation called These Days: Audio Journal on his SoundCloud. The local artist says the audio journal is a timestamp of what's going on in his life now. He believes it is important to keep his fans updated on his life while he is working on larger projects. 

Falana says Manifesto 11 is his largest show to date. He says he is excited to perform at the festival because everyone on the lineup is "talented and dope."

"I'm happy that there's a bunch of Toronto artists on the bill because there's a lot of talent here and it's great that we're finally showcasing it." 

Catch Falana's live show at Manifesto 11 at 3:30 p.m. this Saturday. 

The interview below aired on Arts & Culture on the Morning Mixtape, hosted by Nicole Di Donato. In the interview they talked about Falana’s hometown, his album Live From Rocky Mountain as well as his upcoming performance at Manifesto 11.
