Bursting on stage with a full band and rotating entourage of special guests, Koriass jumped, stomped, and spat – using every inch of the Astral stage. His hard won notoriety over years of rap battles and hip hop collaborations has clearly sharpened the young performer’s confidence and charisma. Double nominated at this year’s ADISQ awards, his songs about love, loss, and childhood dreams have found a wider audience than just Quebecois youth. At times aggressive and forceful, at others silly and playful, Koriass’s spellbinding performance proved the growing fame is well deserved.
