Christylez Bacon comes to Anacostia!

Chris

In celebration of our extended hours, the Anacostia Neighborhood Library is pleased to welcome grammy nominated Christylez Bacon on Sunday, Oct. 20 from 2-3 p.m.!

Christylez Bacon (pronounced: chris-styles) is a Progressive Hip-Hop artist and multi-instrumentalist from Southeast, Washington, D.C. As a performer, Christylez multitasks between various instruments such as the West African djembe drum, acoustic guitar and the human beat-box (oral percussion), all while continuing the oral tradition of storytelling through his lyrics. With a mission towards cultural acceptance and unification through music, Christylez is constantly pushing the envelope – from performances at the National Cathedral, to becoming the first Hip-Hop artist to be featured at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, composing and orchestrating an entire concert for a 12-piece orchestra commissioned by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the Smithsonian Institute, or recording a Folk/Hip-Hop children’s album.

This event is free and open to the public!
