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 mediums.  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 been
touring the world with his 3-piece band known as the House Of
Vibe.  Breathing new life into his musical past, he recently
announced “Against The Current”, a music and art project that
combines a series of genre bending EPs with a coffee table book
featuring original artwork and photography from Chali
himself.  Chali relocated from Chicago to LA in the early 80’s
when he was entering his teens and was instantly engulfed by
the worlds of hip hop and graffiti.  As his music career began to
flourish, his artistic talents also expanded past the walls of city
streets and onto canvas and into galleries.  Now, as Chali’s
collection continues to grow he is finding unique ways to share
his visual art with the world, and demand for it is snowballing.
In 2013, he reunited with Jurassic 5 for a long run of Festival
appearances and a World Tour premiering at Coachella.
Chali’s growing reputation as a Hip Hop Legend paints a bright
future as he continues to build momentum with his artwork,
voice-over work, and an increasing variety of performance
collaborations including his most recent partnership with UK
Producer, Krafty Kuts.
