Buck 65 + Symphony Nova Scotia

"It was something that could only happen in Halifax" says Halifax Chronicle Herald critic Stephen Pedersen.

Back in April of this year, Canadian hip hop artist and poet extraordinaire Buck 65 did a special intimate concert engagement with the classical ensemble of Symphony Nova Scotia, at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium in Halifax, Nova Scotia. What transpired over the next hour and a half was something so mind bending, so awe inspiring, a small concert in tiny Eastern Canada turned into a galactic 'experience' in the world of music. Here were two worlds on opposite ends of the spectrum, thrust together in a bizarre collision, producing a phenomenal soundclash for the ages.

The full concert is available for streaming ONLY on CBC Radio 2, but discussions are currently ongoing between Buck and CBC about acquiring the rights in hopes for a future digital release.

Check the set and stay tuned!
