I’m so happy to be a part of my awesome friend Christylez Bacon’s project: The Washington Sound Museum. Check it out: After two sold out concerts, Washington Sound Museum returned to the Atlas Performing Arts Center on April 25th & 26th 2015 with Grammy nominated Progressive Hip-Hop artist, CHRISTYLEZ BACON and Brazilian vocalist, CISSA PAZ. Both shows were sold out and the audience was captivated by the ease at which the band mixed Brazilian and American rhythms and flavors. The pair has been exploring the connections of traditional Brazilian music and Hip-Hop/Go-Go resulting in a collaboration that has taken Christylez and Cissa abroad to Brasilia, Brazil to collaborate with Brazilian virtuoso harmonica player, PABLO FAGUNDES, and back to Washington, DC to debuting their collaborative soundscapes for Washington Sound Museum’s 23rd Installment. As a bonus, the renowned percussionist VALERINHO XAVIER also came from Brasilia to join the project!
Join us this Friday, May 1st, for an AFTER PARTY and Concert taking place at TROPICALIA (14th and U Streets, NW, DC) to celebrate the beautiful cultural exchange which has been taking place and give a chance for the ones who missed the concert at the Atlas to experience with the artists.
