1.Jo and the Dudes

Jo and the Dudes is a band that was founded back in 2011 in Amberg, Bavaria, Germany. Two acoustic guitars, a piano and percussions playing in a band together may be nothing out of the ordinary, but what makes this band extraordinary is the fact that all four members sing together in perfect harmony which creates a unique listening experience.

2. Great Integration: A Chamber Hip Hop Opera

Great Integration fearlessly merges the genres of hip hop and classical music, transcending the reductive black/white dichotomy of modern hip hop. Steinway artist and composer JooWan Kim is a classically-trained graduate of Berklee College of Music and SF Conservatory of Music. Partially inspired by the Mayan calendar prophecies, Kim’s hip hop opera tells an allegorical saga of the conquering of the material lords and the birth of a new world paradigm. Great Integration is performed by JooWan’s very own Ensemble Mik Nawooj, an 8-piece chamber orchestra made up of flute, cello, clarinet, violin, bass, and deep funk drums, along with two MCs and composer Kim on piano. They have generated both shock and praise from audiences and critics alike for its uncompromising blend of rap and classical.They have packed venues such as Yoshi’s SF and Old First Concerts in SF, and has had several sold out concerts at the Oakland Metro Operahouse. In addition, the hip hop opera has been featured on The New Yorker, NPR, SF Chronicle, Flavorpill & more.
