Akim Funk Buddha's Urban Orchestra
From the streets of Bali to Carnegie Hall, from meditative throat singing to high-energy Hip Hop rhymes, Akim Funk Buddha creates borderless performance art, fusing sounds and movements. Rhyming, beat-boxing, mouth and body percussion, story-telling, break-dancing, Mongolian throat-singing, Indonesian monkey chants, body-balancing, martial arts, tap and circus arts are seamlessly blended to create distinctly spiritual yet urban sonic and visual compositions.
Rima has collaborated with Akim as violinist and vocalist for 3 years, performing several times at the BAM Café as well as at the Blue Note and Avery Fisher Hall.
