Classical hip-hop, hip-hop opera, hip-hopera – whatever you want to call it, it sounds incredible. Oakland’s Ensemble Mik Nawooj, led by composer/pianist JooWan Kim, subverts expectations with a multi-genre crew of flute, clarinet, violin, cello, drums, bass, an opera singer, and profound rhymes from mesmerizing MCs/lyricists Do D.A.T. and Sandman.
Combining classical techniques and method sampling, EMN creates awe-inspiring arrangements that have been called “the cutting edge of hip-hop” (Huffington Post). It’s a mashup of the oldest old-school and the marvelously modern, resulting in a kinetic energy of “textures swimming through the sound ... like the world’s fastest ping-pong game” (Pitchfork).
Immerse yourself in the beat and beauty of music that both breaks you open and makes you whole.
