Cuerators and International Anthem have teamed up for an event promising to be a map of how Jazz makes its way to Hip Hop and how Hip Hop can make it back to Jazz. A lofty goal indeed but when you’re talking about musicians like LeFtO & Makaya McCraven, an internationally renowned DJ and an internationally renowned Drummer / Producer respectively, the goal seems pretty close to completion. Both men live on the road and this show is a rare chance to see both artists together…

A couple years back Makaya was a force to be reckoned with at our Elder Tree stage at West Fest, & we had LeFtO here for a set that same year. Both performances were stellar, and even though we’re obviously biased, we can safely say this event will be one for the books! Peep a few pics from the last LeFtO show here (courtesy of Victor Duarte).

Rounding out the lineup is Push 3, a trio of members of the Push Beats beatmaker collective who’ve corralled their live musicianship skills into live jazz performance.  Also featured are Push Beats members Uncle El & Indigo High who’ll perform their dynamic live beat sets. Take a second to get familiar with LeFtO’s mixshow below and make it a point to witness the real deal later this week!
