8-midnight Dissolve Dance Party, with Shing02 and Toshiya the Tribal (from Japan)

This one-day event, a continuation of the Dissolve Inequality (mitdissolve.mit.edu) series, will explore the question:  How can a new era of music offer insights into dynamics that can reduce inequalities — gender, racial, economic, and more?  

The event will feature panel discussions with artists, scholars and activists, as well as a networking dinner and musical performance in the evening featuring internationally acclaimed rapper Shing02 (from Japan), an artist-activist known in part for his opening theme song on the anime “Samurai Champloo.”  Other musical guests include the A-Beez (local jazz funk legends) and Toshiya the Tribal (also from Japan).

Contact:  Prof. Ian Condry (condry@mit.edu), Global Studies and Languages, MIT.  Thanks to generous support from the SHASS Dean’s Office, Global Studies and Languages, and MIT Japan.
