Our brothers and cohorts from Invisible Inc Multimedia, Merc Versus and a Man Called Relik are now officially members of the Tomahawk Zulus. Tomahawk Zulus are the Indiana chapter of the Universal Zulu Nation. The Universal Zulu Nation is an international hip hop awareness group formed and headed by hip hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa. Originally known simply as the Organization, it arose in the 1970s as reformed New York City gang members began to organize cultural events for youths, combining local dance and music movements into what would become known as the various elements of hip hop culture.
The fourth annual Broad Ripple Music Fest is just around the corner! On October 16th Indy’s favorite cultural community mecca will become the canvas for over 200 local, regional and national artists performing on 20 stages!
