christylez bacon: hip hop folk hero

we caught christylez bacon‘s truly entertaining jam session
at the new carrollton branch of the PG county library.
he blended the folk tradition of storytelling
while multitasking with his instrumental repertoire:
the human beat box, west african djembe drum, acoustic guitar and even a pair of spoons.

he closed the show down by collecting words from the audience
and putting them in a freestyle rap.

this down-to-earth, grammy-nominated brother from SE DC is surely doin’ his thang.
