CAP Super Saturdays: DJ Kool Akiem
DJ Kool believes that within Hip-Hop culture is an often misunderstood form of creativity, ingenuity, and originality which can be applied to any path in life. As a teaching artist DJ Kool attempts to communicate these practical lessons he has learned throughout his career in an inspirational, thought provoking and cool exploration of history and technology.
Creating ornate and electric samples over rugged drum hits and 808 kicks, Kool Akiems productions have a signature feeling which provides musical excitement that doesnt distract from the lyrics. Constantly reinventing his production and style, he has become a master of his genre. Currently, Akiem teaches The History of Hip-Hop at McNally Smith College of Music, serves on the COMPAS teaching artist roster, and mentors youth and emerging artists.
CAP Super Saturdays is Caponi Art Park's newest family-friendly program held on six Saturday mornings June - September.
At each event professional artists will have participants up and moving to the music, learning new dances and creatively engaging in art activities and exploring the art and nature in the park. A healthy snack will be provided and families will be encouraged to bring a picnic lunch and get to know their neighbors over a meal.
Learn more about the program line up on our website.
