About Christylez Bacon
As a dynamic member of the progressive hip hop movement, Christylez Bacon brings innovation to an art form already known for melding varied urban musical styles. Bacon adds a new flavor to the mix by harmonizing musical genres from around the world in a multi-instrumental exploration of beat box (oral percussion), rap, go-go, classical music and beyond. He frequently performs with artists of diverse backgrounds as part of what Bacon calls his “mission towards cultural acceptance and unification through music.” By building cross-cultural connections, these presentations help students gain insight into the universality of artistic expression and encourage their direct participation in the performance experience through the use of call and response.
