Grammy-nominated hip-hop artist Christylez Bacon is known for his beatboxing, rhyming, and story-telling skills. This collaboration with violinist Nistha Raj offers a contemporary take on classical Hindustani music. Together, this adventurous duo creates something totally fresh. It’s an edgy, innovative amalgam that draws on their diverse heritages with the goal of bridging cultural divide.

Music is like fire, never stale, existing mainly because of relentless rejuvenation.  This fusion performance (Nistha Raj & Christylez Bacon) had a class, uncompromising musicality and entertained the audience.  This is a proof that you can have the cake and eat it too! ”
