Cutting edge of hip-hop

– Huffington Post

“Classically-trained composer/pianist JooWan Kim leads Ensemble Mik Nawooj in the creation of Meta Music by sampling principles of both hip-hop and classical. Merging genres with resident MC Unity Lewis, a lyric soprano, woodwinds, French horn, string, piano, and drums, Ensemble Mik Nawooj creates rigorous, nuanced, and accessible music that challenges the aesthetics of Western European concert music in a way that is fast-paced, engaging, and fun.”
