The following is a guest post from the Cornel West theory:
Greetings from the Cornel West theory! For those of you who may not have heard of us, we are a Washington, D.C.-based hip-hop band. We grew up in the city, live in the city and create art inspired by the city’s rich musical history.
Our music consists of lyricism, spoken word, electronics and vocals, drawing from homegrown go-go, to rock, to hip-hop. With the blessing of Dr. Cornel West, the Princeton University professor, we formed in 2004, though have served as members of the D.C. arts community since the early 1990’s.
As BloomBars’ new band-in-residence, we look forward to sharing our music with the BloomBars family while our partnership blossoms. Over the past four months, we’ve been creating – incubating, really – our next album at BloomBars and we’re ecstatic to say that “the Shape of Hip-Hop to Come” will be released on July 19!
On July 1, 2 and 3 we are filming a concert DVD presented by BloomBars.
On three consecutive nights, we intend to document what BloomBars provides for artist like us. And we intend to rock out with you.
But here’s where we need YOUR help. We can’t make this DVD a reality without you! That’s why we are officially launching our donation campaign for this unique DVD project today on IndieGoGo.
This is a dream project for us, but we need your support to make that dream come true. And with a donation of $15 or more, you’ll be the first to get a copy of the DVD too!
To show our appreciation for you, our fans and BloomBars supporters, we invite you to
explore our music with a free exclusive digital remix album titled “Hidden City: Second Rome Rebuilt” to hold you over until we show you “the Shape of Hip-Hop to Come” on July 19th!
Look for many more groundbreaking projects from us as we make BloomBars our new home! Meanwhile, Bloom with us by joining our Facebook fan page!
