ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Growing up just a short distance apart from each other in Southeast Washington, DC and Woodbridge, VA, Christylez got his start in music playing the buckets while Wytold entered Strings class in elementary school. Christylez learned about beatboxing and rhyming listening to hip-hop records his mother used as a DJ, while Wytold studied classical repertoire on his grandmother's cello. In high school, Christylez developed his own original style through improvised freestyle raps with friends at Duke Ellington School of the Arts, and Wytold explored bringing guitar techniques and electronics to his classical instrument while studying physics and philosophy at Johns Hopkins University. Christylez taught Creative Writing in DC Public Schools and Wytold worked in HR for the federal government before becoming full-time musicians. Together, the duo creates opportunities to explore cultural intersections in the United States by bringing Hip-Hop to the concert hall and cello to rap.

Former Artists in Residence at The Music Center at Strathmore, recipients of multiple grants from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, the Montgomery County Council on the Arts and Humanities and the Maryland State Arts Council, the duo has performed in over 70 schools offering ‘Classical Hip-Hop’ educational programs to elementary, middle, and high school students.

They have been featured performers at the Columbia Festival, The National Gallery of Art and numerous embassies in the District of Columbia. In 2016 the duo co-composed the score for Wooly Mammoth Theater’s critically acclaimed play, “An Octoroon” in which Wytold was a featured performer onstage throughout the show.

Twice a year they collaborate with award-winning poets on a week-long “Music and Words” workshop for wounded warriors at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and Fort Belvoir.

In 2015, the duo was invited to collaborate on the National Symphony Orchestra’s “NSO In Your Neighborhood” series on a program which featuring fully orchestrated versions of their original compositions performed with the NSO and a DJ to a crowd of over 2,000 at Echostage. In 2016 they performed a version of “Remixing the Classics” especially for family audiences along with the NSO at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Concert Hall and were invited to collaborate with the NSO in early 2017 on for another “NSO In Your Neighborhood Concert” at THEARC in SE Washington, DC. Their debut album, "Beats, Bows and Remixes", will be released on February 18, 2018 in a collaborative performance with the NSO at the Kennedy Center.
