Been holding onto this nugget for minute, but this is HUGE for us – check it out: DJ 2-Tone Jones of the SHAOLIN JAZZ Project was recently selected to participate in the first ever Next Level program initiated by the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill Department of Music and the US State Department. Along with 3 other artists, 2-Tone is currently in India for the next 3 weeks engaging youth and local artists with Hip Hop as a means to bring about conflict resolution.
