daKAH, the world’s first Hip Hop Orchestra and the subject of the highly acclaimed film, “Hip Hop Maestro” by Christine Lee, is officially on their way to the Bay Area!
Through the generosity of their fan base and many of our local sponsors, staff and friends daKAH was able to raise the funds needed to bring the musicians up to this year’s Mill Valley Film Festival and will be playing at our Closing Night Party. Imagine that!
The party is a recreation of the Roaring 20’s mixed in with contemporary culture. Who would have thought you could take symphonic music, jazz and cross over into Hip Hop? daKAH did! Who would have thought a silent film, in black & white, would have Oscar buzz? Mark & Zoe did! And remember what they said about “The King’s Speech.”
Sol Hernandez and her staff will be preparing the main menu from our favorite neighborhood restaurant Sol Food. Marin French Cheese, Judy’s Breadsticks, Champagne French Bakery and Peet’s Coffee will all be on hand to serve up their delicious fare.
Lorin Rowan has lined up a jazz trio, “The Prohibitioners” with one of Marin County’s best jazz piano players hammering the keys at the baby grand. daKAH and it’s chamber orchestra version of their band, (31 musicians), will close out the night.
This party closes the 34th annual Festival. We want you to have fun and remember not to speak too easy!
