ABOUT RISING STYLES
This festival is developed and delivered by KALA PHOOL, one of the UKs leading arts development agencies. With particular focus on providing positive experiences for artists, audiences, funders, partners across all projects, Kala Phool’s work is highly respected. Kala Phool’s work has reached many territories including, Australia, USA, Singapore, India and across the UK.
RISING STYLES is the UK’s longest running Hip Hop Festival, its not for profit and run entirely by dedicated volunteers. It fundraises each year to meet the needs of the various events it delivers under the festival banner and attracts artists from across the UK and internationally.
Rising Styles achievements have only been made possible with the support of the artists who take part, the volunteers who work tirelessly to make it happen, the venues and sites who work with us, the funders who support us and to the audiences who come out each year to experience the positive side of hip hop and in particular, hip hop from the UK.
For over five years Hoochinoo has been showcasing, supporting and promoting new acts from the UK’s underground alternative hip hop and urban music scene. Giving people an opportunity to perform live in exciting environments has attracted a lot of attention from new artists and the establishment alike.
“Hoochinoo put on a fine night, helping to showcase unknown talent and bringing a new vibe to the capital’s musical landscape”.
“Not your regular hip-hop night”
~ London Tourdates Magazine
The live event emphasises the alternative side of the music, incorporating everything from flute playing beatboxers to some of the best scratch DJs and live acts that perform within the UK. People get what they expect from a hip hop night but are also treated to something completely different, an all encompassing full on spectacle of live hip hop fusion.
Hoochinoo’s main aim is to push the music through barriers that have been created in the industry. We give artists who truly love hip hop and urban music the platform to perform and reach their potential audience.
The alternative perspective allows all forms of experimental hip hop to be included and leads to a very refreshing take on urban music, but the raw edge remains.
