The ACF Washington is thrilled to partner for the first time with the non-profit organization Words Beats & Life (WBL) and venture into new territory for a unique evening full of words, beats and sounds. Juxtaposed to the two local Hip-Hop poetry artists Raquel 'Ra' Brown and Alan King will be the poetry-slammer Christoph Steiner, spitting some Austrian poetry. The English-German poetry slam will be accompanied with music by the four young Austrian artists Paul J. Diwiak (double bass), Stefan Matl (accordion), Magdalena Susic (violin) and Elisabeth Weinzerl (clarinet). This event is part of this year’s WBL Hip-Hop Festival held between November 1 to November 10 at various locations around DC, promoting Hip-Hop as a vehicle to transform individual lives and communities.
About Words Beats & Life (WBL)
What began as a Hip-Hop conference at the University of Maryland in 2000 became a working group of unapologetic advocates for the transformative power of Hip-Hop culture in all its forms, empowering artists to relentlessly create and refine systems that demonstrate positive change through their individual and collective brilliance. WBL embraces the sacred nature of their own work and their roles as keepers and innovators of their culture.
