On January 24th & 25th 2015, Grammy nominated Progressive Hip-Hop artist, Christylez Bacon and 2013-2014 Strathmore Artist in Residence and Hindustani Classical violinist, Nistha Raj will kick off Washington Sound Museum’s 2015 season, exploring the spaces between Indian Classical music, Hip-Hop, and Go-Go for Washington Sound Museum’s 22nd installment. In addition to creating a cross-cultural music mash-up, the event offers a curated tea reception and mini-lessons on the styles of Indian classical dance and Go-Go’s “Beat Ya Feet” dance, giving the audience a chance to get into the action. This combination of music, art and culture will culminate in a live performance that has been four years in the making.
