Last week we got to chat to rapper Horsepowar about her upcoming performance at the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival on July 2 at 7pm. She shared details with us about her future, her career aspirations, and where she's heading these days (she's heading way up, in case you were in doubt...)
Meet Jasleen Power, AKA Horsepowar.
"I believe in individuality and that we are all different, but at the end of the day, we all go through things that have made us feel really low, or really high and we really just need to be there for each other in support.

We should be enjoying our time here because you don't know what is going to happen." - Jasleen Powar, aka Horsepowar
