Hello, supporters of hip hop ensemble!

You can listen to the group on KWVA 88.1 FM, UO campus radio TODAY 3/6 at 4pm. If you're not in the Eugene area, you can stream it via the internet. We'll be playing hip hop classics like Rapper's Delight, That's the Joint, T.R.O.Y., Dynamite, Cut Chemist Suite, and Bowtie, many of them with new lyrics added.

A flurry of first-week gifts has gotten us up over the 1/3 mark - thank you donors!  This week the hip hop ensemble worked on songs by Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth and Outkast, and began composing a new song together.  These kids are creative and cooperative and a blast to work with!
