The Center for Ethnomusicology is delighted to announce a “meet the artist” event with leading Indigenous media artist/producer/rapper Sacramento Knoxx, to be held in 701C Dodge Hall on the Columbia Morningside Campus (The Center for Ethnomusicology) on TUESDAY OCT 25 from 5-7PM. This event is open to all, but space is limited so come early. Please be fully vaccinated and be prepared to wear a mask.
Sacramento Knoxx (Christopher Yepez) is an Ojibwe/Anishinaabe and Xicano media artist, emcee, music producer, and community cultural worker. A prominent interdisciplinary artist from Southwest Detroit, Knoxx brings audiences a blend of visual art and performance that inspires, educates, motivates, and engages youth and elders alike in communities of color. His work is a creative expression of identity, love, and healing that challenges and confronts social ills. He is a founding member of the Aadizookaan, a dynamic collective of creatives who, guided by ancestral indigenous-based knowledge systems, tell uplifting cultural stories through multidisciplinary art and music.
This is his fifth visit to Columbia as a guest artist, and every other visit has left a deep impression on many here. Don’t miss this if you can make it! Knoxx will bring along some synthesizer gear and perform, but has also expressed a desire to jam with our guests, so be prepared!
