LACMA Presents Through the Mic Vol 4: Freestyle Fellowship & Breakestra
Visit LACMA.ORG/FREESTYLE for more info and tickets.
Freestyle Fellowship and Breakestra will be preforming a fusion of jazz, funk, soul, and hip-hop this Thursday, August 16th, in front of Chris Burden’s, Urban Light, at 7 PM.
Freestyle Fellowship features Aceyalone, Myka 9, P.E.A.C.E., and Self Jupiter. Since the independent release of 1991′s To Whom It May Concern, Freestyle Fellowship’s indelible mark has involved stream-of-consciousness rhymes, intricate wordplay, powerful battle raps, and thoughtful spoken word poetry that incorporates jazz, funk, soul, and reggae all under the umbrella of hip hop.
Breakestra is made up of eight folks getting loose and flexing some soulful skills over some serious grooves—both original and deep covers drawn from music’s vast vault of funk—think James Brown, the Meters, early Kool & the Gang, Funkadelic, and Sly & the Family Stone mixed in a gumbo pot. Breakestra’s live performances are events not to be missed.
Tickets are $10 for members and $15 for non-members. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased online!
