Kal Champlain aka 5th Elament is an independent artist, educator, and femcee. Rocking mics for over 12 years, she has yet to leave a crowd who was not positively affected after what many have come to know as "the 5th Elament experience."
Exploring all sides of herself from the intellectual to sexual,she has become revered by women and men alike with statements such as "5th Elament made me rethink what a woman was supposed to be in a great way" and "I was thoroughly entertained and empowered."
5th Elament takes her listeners on a journey with each track, and loves nothing more than to mix fun in with the lesson. Referring to herself as a "jedi," her light saber (or weapon of choice) is a wireless mic so that she can be one with the crowd as needed to always keep them a part of the show.
Although rooted in hip hop, 5th Elament's music has an eclectic feel that has appealed to audiences outside of hip hop as well, making her universal. This artist leaves all with hope, love, head nods, and a good time.
Her work is meant to call the spirit to a higher place, remind the soul to open up, and show what can happen with a change in just one individual. Believing that women should never be placed in a box, 5th Elament is determined to take the freedom to explore every part of herself in her music and poetry to show women that there is nothing they can't do.
She carries many alter egos, but the main one is 5th Elament: showing her conviction that it is women who will bring together the four elements of hip hop through their knowledge, compassion, and sense of community.
