Welcome back! The school of HipHop is putting on a summer camp the 24th through the 28th of July. The venue for this event will be 'The Nash' in downtown Phoenix. The turn out is expected to be high as this is the second year the camp with be happening.

SOHH appeared on Fox 10 news today at 9:45 am and 5 pm to promote the camp. Along with a live cypher, Camille Sledge one of the founders of the SOHH, gave some serious insight into the program and what to expect during this session. I had a sit down with William Figgins another founder of the SOHH for a more in depth look at the camp, to see what personal goals or thoughts he may have for the second session.

"I would describe the Jazz and HipHop camp as the connection of two generes of music. Really taking the time to bring the two different styles together. We want to bridge the generational gap, and show how jazz culture has influenced HipHop culture. Educating the youth of Phoenix ages 12-19 about different types of music, the 5 elements of HipHop and how they relate to African culture is one of our main priorities. My personal goal is to make sure the students walk away with a deeper understanding of jazz and how it relates to elements of HipHop culture. And overall know how to perform with other artists and musicians."

Below the links to the student registration application, and the volunteer application are listed. A link to the Fox 10 news appearance via facebook will also be available. There will be pictures of the cypher added to the gallery as well. Both the interview and the cypher were also available via instagram live!
