Public Program:
White Mandingos + Heems
June 14 2013 at 19:00

Celebrated West Coast rhyme-slayer Murs, legendary Bad Brains bassist Darryl Jenifer, and ego trip founder Sacha Jenkins SHR are The White Mandingos. Their feverish, resolute songs are less a hybridization of their individual backgrounds than a re-examination of the intersections between punk, hip hop, and reggae music. The White Mandingos funnel the aggression, militancy, petulance, and concern from decades of resistance music, revealing a timely and vivid new direction.

Heems is a rapper, DJ, and writer from Queens, New York. Best known as cofounder of the rap group Das Racist, Heems embarked on a solo career at the beginning of 2012. For this performance, he will present a DJ set accompanied by video projections.

This is an all-ages event.
