The National Anthem, Remixed
Beat box artist Shodekeh leads a new interpretation of the National Anthem on the day that Francis Scott Key penned the anthem's lyrics 200 years earlier. This contemporary take on the anthem fuses elements of hip hop, beat boxing, and classical music. This premiere performance is a statement of the ever-changing nature of America and of the diversity of experiences that make up our country.
