NYC: Skillz to Take Brazil Album Release Party 4/16/10!

Back in Brooklyn, safely returned from the most successful European tour yet and gearing up for the release of the world's first 'Multi-lingual, International, Documentary Hip Hop Album:' "SKILLZ TO TAKE BRAZIL!"

On April 16, 2010, we will celebrate the release of this album (in deluxe
CD packaging) by performing the record in its entirety accompanied by a
live Latin arrangement. The evening will feature a number of guests,
including Zajazza from France, as well as the Hip Hop Game Show The
Freestyle Pyramid, hosted by Farbeon. Copy of the CD with admission.

In February 2009, two partners in rhyme, Rabbi Darkside and Hired Gun set out from Brooklyn, New York to rendezvous with good friend, beat maker, and fellow world traveler DJ Zajazza in Brazil. Over the course of two weeks, several shows, three cities, and much cachaca, a sound emerged. From the late night sessions, community building in the favelas of Porte Alegre and Passo Fundo, what started as “The Skillz to Take Brazil” Tour soon took musical form. “Skillz to Take Brazil” is an international collaboration of artists from New York, Brazil and France, coming together to express the spirit of Hip Hop, brotherhood and community. Imagine the pulsating energy of Samba and the rawness of New York City streets wrapped up in soulful jazz production. “Skillz to Take Brazil” is the result of collaboration, culture, connection, and community.
