Calamine is a queer, feminist and anti-capitalist rapper based in Hochelaga, Montreal. Since 2018, she has been working with producer Kèthe Magané to deconstruct the gender binary and the cult of the automobile, debunking patriarchy, Capital with a capital "C" and heteronormativity through texts as personal as they are informative.
In November 2020, the rapper released her first full-length solo album entitled Boulette Proof. It was on the heels of this album that she came in second place in the 2021 Francouvertes competition, was named Révélation Radio-Canada 2021 and finally received the Félix-Leclerc award during her performance at the 2021 Francos de Montréal. As soon as she arrived on the Montreal scene, Calamine attracted the attention of France by receiving three invitations to present her project at the MAMA festival in Paris in October 2021, the Trans Musicales festival in Rennes in December 2021 and the Francofolies de Larochelle in 2022.
