An exuberant musical experience, rooted firmly in traditional Jewish modes and melodies and driven by contemporary rhythms and danceable grooves, Hal Aqua and The Lost Tribe play nouveau klezmer music. The versatile musicians who make up The Lost Tribe have a deep respect for their source material, from the evocative tunes of Eastern European Jews and Gypsies to the sinuous rhythms of the Middle East and Mediterranean. http://denverlibrary.org/fresh#music

The 4 Traditional Elements of Hip Hop are the MC, the DJ, the Graffiti Artist and the Bboy/BGirl Dancer. The 5th Element of Hip Hop has always been in debate. You've might of heard that the 5th Element is knowledge, or fashion, slang, entrepreneurship... We believe that the Freestyle answers less of "what" the 5th Element is, and rather more of, "how" one does it. The Freestyle 5th Element is about self-determination and how Hip Hop can positively influence your life as a whole.
