daKAH HIP HOP ORCHESTRA
This a definite meeting of 2 worlds. An eye opener for some, a revelation for others. With an entire crew membership consisting of about 60 musicians & a couple of turntablists, it is unlikely that they'd be invited to tour outside of the USA. So I guess we have to be content with hearing them via CD only. Brass, woodwind, strings, vocals, percussion & guitars. The turntable part is proved by the supremo djs from Cali, Haul & Mason. Underground favourite Dr. Oop also jumps in on occasion for mic duties. Their latest release is a 2-disc version of Unfinished Symphony.
