Ensemble Mik Nawooj

Ensemble Mik Nawooj

Ever wonder what Wu Tang’s C.R.E.A.M might sound like performed by a hip-hop orchestra? Oakland-based Ensemble Mik Nawooj (EMN) does just that. Led by Korean born, Bay area-based Taoist composer JooWan Kim, the group melds Western European Classical compositional techniques into hip-hop, rock, & pop. The result, according to San Francisco Bay Guardian, "is a sound that juxtaposes the rapid-fire staccato of rap with the bombastic percussiveness and dramatic tension of western classical music. It's unapologetic and truly like nothing else.”

The ten-piece chamber orchestra includes two MCs, deep funk drums and a lyric soprano. They have released their first studio release, Ensemble Mik Nawooj: A Hip-Hop Orchestra.

Ensemble Mik Nawooj have performed at Yoshi’s Oakland, Yerba Buena Gardens Festival, Yerba Buena Nights,Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Art & Soul Festival, Brick & Mortar Music Hall, Hertz Hall, The New Parish, The Independent, The Fox and more.

EMN has been featured on Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker, London Times, OZY, URB Magazine, KQED, ABC 7, SF Chronicle, SF Weekly and more.
