Violent Ground are two brothers, Allan and Christian Nabinacaboo from the Naskapi Nation of Kawawachikamach a small community in the northern borderlands of Quebec and Labrador. They began making music at an early age. Violent Ground was founded, quite naturally, after being separated due to education. They explored rhyming each on their own without knowing the other was putting himself out there. This led to the beginning of their career by performing shows in reserves in Quebec as well as First People's Festival in Montreal. The group's name is inspired by the history of the land and issues Indigenous people face drug addiction, alcoholism, colonialism, racism, crimes, and violence. They want to give voice to their community, and to all Indigenous people.
