Christylez Bacon & Nistha Raj

Thursday, September 17, 2020, 7:30pm

The Mansion



Christylez Bacon, hip-hop & Nistha Raj, violin

Grammy-nominated hip-hop artist Christylez Bacon is known for his beat-boxing, rhyming, and storytelling skills. This collaboration with violinist Nistha Raj offers a contemporary take on classical Hindustani music. Together, Bacon and Raj create something totally fresh. It’s an edgy, innovative amalgam that draws on their diverse heritages with the goal of bridging cultural divides. These envelope-pushing artists are no strangers to innovation. Raj has already enjoyed significant critical acclaim, described by Inside World Music as “clearly awe-inspiring…Indian fusion at its best.” Bacon’s career highlights include a 12-piece orchestra arrangement commissioned by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and being the first hip-hop artist featured at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival.

Order a gourmet boxed dinner to enjoy before the show made by Ridgewells.
Place your order here by 3pm the day before the show.

This show is a part of our Inpsired Parings season.
