Baba Bomani show episode 6 with Christylez Bacon

Check out this interview with Grammy Nominated artist and educator Christylez Bacon. We explore his growth as an artist coming from Southeast DC and graduating from Duke Ellington High school for the performing arts, his experience with the Crushed I.C.E. Teen Program, and we reminisce on our days teaching art integrated workshops with the National Organization for Concerned Black men (before it was called art integration). Also learn more about the cultural exchange program he started with D.C.’s city sister Brazillia, Brazil, and his self taught ethnomusicology that has led him all the way to Iceland.
