Indonesian monkey chanting, Mongolian throat singing, and Balinese body popping are just a few tricks that Akim Funk Buddha has embraced as a means of redefining hip-hop. He continues that tradition with another Hip-Hop Holiday weekend at BAMcafé Live.

On Friday, November 23, Akim toes the fringes of the genre with help from Calvin Booker aka DJ Boogie, Swiss Chris on traps and electronic drums, MCs from the Urban Jedi League, and others. On Saturday, November 24, Akim presents his Urban Orchestra, merging Balinese kecak, Japanese kagaku music, and other genres with tight rhyming, beatboxing, and a futuristic soul train that only Funk Buddha could engineer.
