Led by Korean born, Bay area-based Taoist composer JooWan Kim, Ensemble Mik Nawooj injects Classical techniques into hip-hop. The result, according to SF Weekly,“fuses threads of jazz, hip-hop, classical music, pop, and rock into a sprawling, social-class-crossing sound.” The group includes piano, MCs, strings, winds, deep funk drums and a lyric soprano. When asked about his work with EMN, Kim says “I make hip-hop music by deconstructing and rebuilding the musical materials using Classical techniques. You can say that I am “sampling” Classical music techniques to create a new version of hip-hop.”
