206 Zulu at Folklife

It's NW Folklife weekend of course, and you don't need me to tell you that there's plenty of music worth hearing, but the event that most grabs me is the annual 206 Zulu Showcase at the Vera Project on Sunday night.

The third "Zulu Jam" boasts a most impressive lineup of notable Seattle hiphop artists and rising stars including Helladope, Suntonio Bandanaz, Hi-Life Soundsystem, DJ Dev-J and Marissa & SK of Sport'n Life.

Props to Folklife for recognizing the populist nature of hiphop. If the universal appeal of Zulu culture proves anything it is that hiphop is music by and for the folks. On Sunday, May 30 from 7-10pm at Vera. Like all of Folklife, the show is free and open to all ages.
