In conjunction with “From the Streets: An Exhibition of Urban Art,” ArtsWestchester is hosting two cultural programs.
Friday, June 16 at 7 p.m., it’s “Stories and Sounds From Back in the Day with Pioneers Grandmaster Caz and Grand Wizzard Theodore.” It’s a night of performance and storytelling with songwriter, MC, and DJ Curtis “Grandmaster Caz” Brown, an icon of early hip-hop as a member of the Cold Crush Brothers. Caz will be accompanied by Grand Wizzard Theodore, the DJ credited with the “scratching” technique. Then at 4 p.m. Saturday, June 17, it’s “The Sisterhood of Hip-Hop.” This event features a lesson in party dances from “back in the day” lead by Deena Clemente and a panel discussion with graffiti artists and b-girls, followed by a DJ and dance performance. Participants include DJ Perly, Ephrat, Erotica 67, Karen “KayLove” Pedrosa and Peaches Rodriguez.
