In the 2000s, the Lima-born, Harlem-bred rapper Immortal Technique became synonymous with intensely political lyricism, a style that grew out of his studies of revolutionary ideology during a prison sentence and, after his parole, his arrival as a formidable opponent in the world of battle rap. While his ambitions as a rhymer have sometimes hurt the bounce and flow of his music, songs like "Dance with the Devil" are cult classics. With support from Maria Isa, Muja Messiah, and more, Friday's concert raises funds in support of the fight against the Line 3 pipeline.
