Welcome to series two of #ToppleUncaged!

Every week, The Canary will be bringing you an innovative podcast for the media landscape; hosted by me, Steve Topple.

In a special episode, I chat with exciting artist Santiina.

Mr Topple x Santiina

Hailing from Jamaica, Santiina has been in the music industry since the tender age of 16. She effortlessly glides between reggae, dancehall, RnB and afrobeat. Moreover, her voice is one of versatility, being equally at home with straight, spine-tingling vocals, rapping or singjay (a mixture of singing and rapping). She recently re-released her moving track Judgement which discusses violence against women, girls and young people, and why society is failing to tackle it.

So, I caught up with Santiina for the #ToppleUncaged podcast. We discussed her musical background, her flipping between genres, Judgement, working with the legendary Spragga Benz and more.

Enjoy!

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support

The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.

The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.

So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
