The bang is on at Bandra fort
This Saturday, the urban street culture artistes will pep up Bandra Fort with performances ranging from graffiti to B-boying acts
Adidas Originals Collision, in association with NH7, will be assorting a host of B-boying artistes, skateboarders, street and graffiti artists, DJs as well as Electronic, Hip-Hop and Reggae bands to electrify the street culture in the city.
Pacing up the tempo, B-boy battles, workshops, live graffiti, graffiti tutorials, and a bazaar will be other interesting events to look forward to. Jas Charanjiva, a 40-year-old street artist, shares that she will be setting up a Kulture Shop stall that will provide the guidance for graffiti / street art along with an array of art prints and T-shirts to bag. Beautifying street art is a personal motivation for Charnajiva and post this initiative, she will be helming a soon-to-be-seen street art movement called Street Kulture.
Pogo, a B-boying artist and part of the Freak n Stylz crew, is anticipating the battle mode of the event. He shares, “As we take on each other as three on three artistes — performing with the crew is exciting.” Given the fact that there are about 2,000-2,500 B-boying artists in the city, the evening surely looks promising.
DJ Reji, Bombay Bassment, The Supersonics and Nucleya will also be performing at the event. Aloysius Lobo, part of Bombay Bassment, confirms that performing on the streets is apt as their music is a “by-product of Hip-Hop, Dance Hall and Reggae.”
On: November 23, 2 pm onwards
At: Bandra Amphitheatre, Bandstand, Bandra (W).
