Choreographer, beatboxer, throat-singer (really!), and hip-hop visionary Akim Funk Buddha returns to BAMcafe for two nights of East-meets-West cultural collisions inspired by Japan. On Friday, come dressed in your best classic 80s attire for record spinning and rhyme spitting, with b-boys and b-girls breaking it down as old-school hip-hop meets Japanese Noh theater. On Saturday, Akim's Urban Orchestra unleashes everything from Afro-funk to Bhangra to Japanese hip-hop.

Venue Description: A multi-arts center located in Brooklyn, offering theater, dance, music, opera, film, and more from emerging artists and innovative modern masters.
