Aboriginal rapper Dwayne Broome will be playing his unreleased originals and showing young people the behind-the-scenes art of mixing beats at the My Fest youth festival on October 25. Mr Broome is just one of the artists who will be teaching a music workshop at My Fest, which is a gathering of the most inspirational young artists from all across the Riverina. Mr Broome will be in his element; he has a growing reputation as a rapper who inspires young people to chase their dreams. "I want to give them something to work towards, something to be proud of, something they can point to and say they've done," Mr Broome said. "They're so mouldable; what they look at, what they listen to, who they look up to can influence their world." READ MORE Word has spread about Mr Broome's inspirational message, and over the past year he's been asked to teach his craft at schools from as far afield as Moama and Deniliquin. "There's been a ripple effect - it keeps growing and growing," Mr Broome said. "Who knows what's going to happen. Far out, it's exciting." My Fest will feature some of the best up-and-coming talent in the region, including Triple J Unearthed sensation Harry Catanzariti; Koori rapper Kuntry Krano, and renowned Hillston singer Harriet Kelly.
