Music / Poetry / Events / Graphic Design
This site is my online portfolio for my various work in music, performance poetry, events and graphic design.
Melinda “DIZI” LONNBERG PRESENTATION:
I have been an active musician and performing artist for most of my life, mainly known for my contribution to the hip hop and poetry scene in southern Finland, Raseborg. Rapping, singing and making performance poetry and poetry slam known in the region by organising jams, slams and workshops is a path I feel content walking on.
Blending styles and genres to express human emotion and information, I aim to look behind stereotypes and also address difficult issues, in my music and poetry I express myself in swedish, english and finnish.
Born and raised in the woods of Kylmälä, and now a resident of Raseborg.
