MC/ Poet/ Songwriter Kuf Knotz and classically trained Harpist / Vocalist/ Music Therapist Christine Elise have combined forces to create a community outreach project exhibiting a very different and dynamic sound where no musical territory goes unexplored. The duo built the project with a similar vision, wanting to create positive, forward-thinking music driven by a strong message. Both individuals are intrinsically motivated to make music accessibility to all, fostering community growth through musical expression. Their mission is to bring motivational, classical hip hop to communities in which expression of the arts is limited. In addition to performance, They offer motivational creative arts workshops and classes for varying ages, using the power of music, clinical training, and performance experience to foster personal growth. Workshops and classes are currently offered in various community settings which include schools, community centers, treatment programs, wellness centers and yoga/meditation centers. Working in a strength based model, the workshops and classes are designed to support each devotee in building skills to build confidence, increase motivation and drive to foster social emotional growth.
