Art + Entertainment + Music + Music/Instruments

Hailed by Pitchfork as “one of modern jazz music’s most audacious futurists”, Grammy-nominated drummer, emcee, vocalist, and producer Kassa Overall melds avant-garde experimentation with hip-hop production techniques to tilt the nexus of jazz and rap in unmapped directions. You'll hear reflections of a panoramic musical background – from West Coast G-Funk to the sounds of the New York underground in his work. Overall has been working at the forefront of New York City’s jazz scene for two decades, touring and recording with artists as varied as Yoko Ono, Dee Dee Bridgewater, and Arto Lindsay.
