Onion City Represent! A2VT's new video for "Winooski, My Town"

One of the more interesting and unusual stories to emerge from the Vermont music community this year was the arrival of local hip-hop trio, A2VT. The group, which was the subject of a Seven Days cover story in July, is composed of three young refugees from Africa: Said Bulle (Somalia and Kenya), Cadoux Fancy (Republic of the Congo) and Geworge Mnyonge (Tanzania), who all currently live in Winooski.

Earlier this week, the trio released a video for their song "Winooski, My Town," from their self-titled debut album. It's a catchy little tune that fuses elements of American hip-hop with the more melodic, pop-centric hip-hop coming out of eastern Africa. The video finds A2VT preaching some seriously sunny civic pride, rapping, singing — and dancing! — in various notable locations around their adopted Onion City home. It's a fine, funky tribute to a town that usually doesn't get a lot of love.
