The forerunner of hip-hop + beats takes the stage

DJing has come a long way, but this night is all about where it started. Enter Afrika Bambaataa, the South Bronx DJ who was one of three creators of break-beat deejaying. He’s known to most as the godfather of hip-hop, but he’s more than just a beatmaker. A community leader, he helped develop the Universal Zulu Nation, a group of politically aware rappers in NYC, and studied at Cornell as a visiting scholar last year. The legend will be joined by fellow DJs Cosmo Baker and OP! General admission. Over 21s only. General admission. Over 21s only.
