Riondel native brings comedic rap concert to the Kootenays

Baba Brinkman is bringing a blend of TED talk, rap concert and sermon to the Civic Theatre on July 13 at 7 p.m.

Riondel native Baba Brinkman is bringing his unique blend of comedy, TED talk, rap concert and sermon to the Civic Theatre on July 13 at 7 p.m.

Coming to the Kootenays for one night only, the Rap Guide to Religion traces the roots of faith from tribal animism to radical Islam to Justin Bieber thanking god at the MTV Teen Choice Awards.

The bottom line: religion evolves.

Brinkmann asserts that even if there is no literal truth to the supernatural claims of religion, there are clearly evolutionary benefits.

“Just like rap concerts, religions are designed to ‘move the crowd’ by any means necessary—and with some famous rappers, Baba is determined to find out why,” read a press release.

Brinkmann began his career in 2004 and has since toured the world with his critically acclaimed hip hop theatre shows, playing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Sydney Opera House.

He currently lives in New York with his wife, neuroscientist Heather Berlin, and their daughter.
