Indonesian monkey chanting, Mongolian throat singing, and Balinese body popping are just a few of the things artist Akim Funk Buddha has embraced as a means of redefining hip-hop. For his latest Hip-Hop Holiday, Akim presents two nights of hip-hop wizardry. On Friday, he explores the art of the rhyme with the help of a DJ, two MCs, vocalists, dancers, and other special guests. Then, on Saturday, Funk Buddha takes the soul train global with a mash-up of traditional Asian and African music, rap, and more.

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