Uniska Wahala Kano: My ability to create art is a reflection of my strict muslim upbringing. I am extremely prideful of my insatiable talent to win over a crowd with undying humor and laughter. My ability to make people laugh is from the trauma experiencing reckless abandonment bullying and feeling like an outcast from the American mold. Unable to assimilate during high school and adulthood has given me the ability to win over crowds. My vibrant personality allows me to create a niche in the performance art world. Objectification is the main object of my performance art. To create a whole new exterior so my environment can be changed. I want to change the world by creating a traumatic experience for the viewer and a cathartic experience for myself.

Born into his 63rd life in 2006, Borts Minorts has lived in San Francisco, New York City and Los Angeles with an alumni of 17 MINORCHESTRAL member / musicians and 13 dancers. With 2 nominations from the S.F. Weekly for Best Experimental Music and loads of glowing press, Borts Minorts and his arsenal of spandex jumpsuits along with his home made instruments, take pride in blending the absolute weirdest structured chaotic musical concepts of The Residents with the spirit and over the top showmanship of rock legends like David Lee Roth and Iggy Pop. Borts fits in nowhere and everywhere. Even the most jaded can’t help but to leave a Borts show smiling!
