The Bytes & Beats 15th anniversary concert of Samurai Champloo is a very influential and unique anime-hip hop experience. It celebrates the best of African American, Japanese, Eastern, and Western cultures combined by throwing a concert that pairs some of the most relevant, upwardly mobile influencers in the anime-inspired hip hop & lo-fi hip hop alongside emcees who worked directly with Samurai Champloo soundtrack composer/producer Nujabes. The show creator Shinichiro Watanabe, and key collaborators such as Nujabes and Fat Jon merged the worlds of anime and hip hop fans like never before. This provided a springboard for the now massive lo-fi, Chill hop, and underground hip hop movements.

Co-presented by Washington Performing Arts.
