Concert - Balagan Boogaloo with Diwon and DeScribe Party to a unique mix of Israeli hip-hop, bhangra, baile funk, radio remixes, 80s freestyle and a live performance by Australian-born Hasidic hip-hop artist DeScribe. DJ Diwon fuses Yemenite music with electro hip-hop and cinematic psychadelia, drawing inspiration from the Middle Eastern musical canon. DeScribe sings with the passion of a prophet, intertwining spirituality with the street."As s producer and DJ, [Diwon] is among the most adventurous and banging on the new Jewish music scene." -The Village Voice“[DeScribe] is forging a name for himself in the New York hip hop world where he combines a pulsating, rhythmic vibe with the strong spiritual ethos of Hassidism. Call him the Lubavitcher Rebbe with natural rhythm and a microphone.” –The Jerusalem Post
