Inaugural NOLA Hip-Hop, Electronic Music Fest Spotlights Budding Beats
NoDef's Dan Goodman looks back at the first-ever Buku Music and Art Project, a St. Patrick's Day weekend-long party at Mardi Gras World. Within the festival, Goodman probes debates within the worlds of electronic music and hip-hop about live performance and, of course, buzz bands.
Buku Fest Best Mixed Before Serving
With this weekend marking the inaugural edition of the Buku Music and Art Project, it might still be difficult for the mind to grasp at what to expect.

Click through to listen, and don't forget about NoDef's full Buku preview, which can be found here.

by Laine Kaplan-Levenson
