SEE IT IN PERSON
Nas and Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley explore the origins of the deeply-rooted reggae and hip hop genre, tracing both sounds back to African music. They will debate and celebrate the implications of this culture’s impact on the global community with a panel of pioneers—from DJ Kool Herc and DJ Red Alert to Jamaican dancehall legend, Daddy U-Roy, King Jammy, and moderator Sway Calloway of MTV. The event at National Geographic is being filmed for an upcoming documentary.

This event is now sold out, but it will be streamed live and broadcast online for free starting 7 p.m. ET on December 12, 2009 at Natgeomusic.net.

Tickets are still available for the after-party and open-mic show at Zanzibar, a Washington, D.C. nightclub, that will feature all event participants. Doors open for the after-party at 9 p.m.
