Chali 2NA, founding member of renowned Hip Hop group Jurassic 5 sits down with the Urban Arts Festival. Tickets are limited to this intimate event.

With his unmistakable baritone voice and 6-and-a-half foot charm, Chali 2na has established himself as one of hip-hop’s preeminent and most charismatic personalities. He’s also garnered renowned praise as a visual artist across a wide spectrum of canvases.

Most known for co-founding music groups, Jurassic 5 and Ozomatli, Chali released his debut solo album “Fish Outta Water” in 2009.  Since then, he has toured the world 10 times over with his 3-piece band known as the House Of Vibe.

Breathing new life into his musical upbringings, in 2013 he embarked on a career defining mission called “Against The Current”, a music + art project that combines a 5-part series of genre bending EPs with a coffee table book featuring original artwork and photography from Chali himself. Chali’s book will be available for purchase and signing by the artist at this event.
