Ensemble Mik Nawooj: a hip-hop orchestra

SEE EVENT DETAILS
at The Emerald Tablet (see times)
Taoist composer/pianist JooWan Kim and his hip-hop orchestra Ensemble Mik Nawooj, with special guest Zakiya Harris.

Ensemble Mik Nawooj “defies such categories as jazz, classical, and hip-hop” (Oakland Tribune), is “ambitious” (The New Yorker), and is “a cosmic melding of culture and genres” (SF Chronicle). MTV called the group “thirsty to change the name of the game”, and NPR praised it by saying “Whoever said that chamber music couldn’t be hip obviously haven’t heard of Ensemble Mik Nawooj.”

The music of Ensemble Mik Nawooj injects classical compositional techniques into hip-hop, indie rock, and pop creating a unique hybrid that “sounds like something Wu-Tang Clan producer The RZA might conjure up if he got his hands on the Kronos Quartet” (SF Weekly).

Ensemble Mik Nawooj has the usual Pierrot ensemble instrumentation (flute, clarinet, violin, cello, and piano) with a lyric soprano, deep funk drums, a heavy contrabass, and 2 MCs. This performance includes 3 brand new pieces, We Will Conquer, a hip-hop/baroque style concerto grosso, Stars of Everything, which is infused with dubstep, and the quasi rondo/variation on the classic Don’t Call Me Nigger, Whitey by Sly & the Family Stone.
