Beatboxer Yazid “Benu Da Soothsayah” Muhammad, DJ Chris “Trife” Williams, dancer Ami Nicole “Tsunami” Ferreira, and MC Chane “Big Piph” Morrow, joined Site Manager and dancer Junious “House” Brickhouse to perform for audiences and collaborate with local artists to promote cross-culture exchange and conflict resolution.
