In May 2019, eight international hip hop artists—dancer Rafael “Kike” Garcia Alanis (Mexico), dancer Jemima Angulu (Nigeria), MC Mirrah Fay-Parker (Australia), MC Fredy Chávez “D’Lak” Escobar (Guatemala), graffiti artist Ernest Ibe (Nigeria), visual artist Hazal Kaya (Turkey), DJ Khlola “DJ Loreen-KIM” Kim (Uzbekistan), and beatmaker Dionis “Don Music” Rivera Rincón (Dominican Republic)— traveled to Washington, D.C. and New York City as part of the Next Level Global program.

Throughout their U.S. residency, the artists performed for diverse audiences, collaborated with local artists, and honed their respective crafts through workshops and practice. This Next Level Global team is part of a Next Level international contingent of MCs, DJs, beatmakers, and hip hop dancers recruited from Next Level countries.
