Our 3PM series
uplifts emerging creative talents in the local community by hosting them for mini concerts and mini snacks in Sid Lee offices. When greeting our latest guest Emma Beko, we weren’t quite sure what to expect. The half-Peruvian half-Hungarian musician, whose sound is equal parts haunting and heavy, careened into our Montreal office’s front door with a 100-kilowatt smile and an enormous stuffed teddy bear.
Emma Beko was one half of the celebrated rap duo Heartstreets before breaking off on her own to release several hit singles
and an EP titled BLUE
. Her new EP Superficial Stains
dropped last month.
Before lighting the office with her voice, Emma sat down with us to chat about identity, music, and cheese.
