    Name: The ArtsCenter presents Mykki Blanco with ZenSoFly
    Date: September 28, 2017
    Time: 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM EDT
    Website: Mykki Blanco
    Event Description:
    Any discussion of contemporary vernacular music—and the music of protest and identity politics—must highlight hip-hop, the most widely influential and impactful genre of the last three decades. In terms of hip-hop credentials, North Carolina historically has not been as loudly lauded as some other Southern states, but the state’s profile in rising dramatically. In many cases, hip-hops artists are at the vanguard of advancing the legacy of the state’s world-renowned soul, jazz, and protest music traditions. With their challenging and innovative work, the two musicians represented in this program push aggressively and artfully against the hip-hop’s traditional genre expectations in terms of sonics, identity, lyrical content, and style.
