Description

Featuring:

DAKAH HIP HOP ORCHESTRA

DJ ZEPH

DJ JERRY ROSS

With more musicians than you can shake a stick at (topping off at 60 members), the Dakah orchestra is taking hip-hop in an entirely new direction.

Touted as the world’s “largest hip-hop orchestra,” Dakah’s MCs and DJs are backed by a medley of classically trained musicians (many of whom are members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic) for a unique symphonic lineup.

While most of contemporary hip hop is contructed with minimal doses of samples and synths, Dakah provides a unique lush backdrop that can only be provided by live violins, violas, cellos, clarinets, oboes, bassoons, harps, and the rest of the symphonic range.

Though Dakah ranks as one of Los Angeles most beloved groups, with recent shows at the Disney Theatre and Henry Fonda Theatre attracting thousands, this will be their first show outside of Los Angeles, and it will be eagerly anticipated.

This year marks the historic 10th Anniversary of the North Beach Jazz Fest. After 10 years, NBJF has pulled out all of the stops to present its finest lineup ever, a feast of sights and sounds from around the United States.

With over 50 acts and hundreds of musicians, it’s easy to see why this year’s North Beach Jazz Fest will be the best ever!
