DuPont Brass
DuPont Brass
DuPont Brass is an eclectic, soulful, brass ensemble hailing from the D.C. Metropolitan Area. Originally composed of five music majors from Howard University trying to raise money for tuition during the Christmas season, DuPont Brass has now grown to a 9-piece ensemble consisting of brass and a rhythm section. Gaining popularity from playing at local Metro stations, DuPont Brass started out professionally playing for local weddings, banquets, and other private events. Thanks to the foundation laid in their earlier years, DuPont Brass has had the opportunity to perform in conjunction with the D.C. Jazz Festival and on the prestigious Kennedy Center Millennium Stage. Touching the hearts of the community with their heartwarming testimony, DuPont Brass has been featured on WTOP's “Live at Five” twice and featured in the Washington Post Newspaper five times. Being trained in both classical and contemporary music, the young group has developed a sound that mixes varied genres of music, including jazz, hip-hop, and R&B. Overall, the mission of DuPont Brass is to uplift the spirits of people with their music, not just in the DMV area, but across the world.

Ras Nebyu
Ras Nebyu
Ras Nebyu is an MC born and raised in Uptown Washington, DC, to an African American mother and an Ethiopian father. Exposed to Roots Reggae at very early age, listening to everything from Peter Tosh to Culture. Nebyu’s love for music quickly became an infatuation. Shortly after Nebyu started to write lyrics of his own, the older he grew the more his music reflected his Rastafarian/Pan-Africanist upbringing. With his influences ranging from a wide variety of MCs from Nas to Gucci Mane, Ras Nebyu manages to bridge the gap between socially conscious content and leisure listening without compromising his lyricals. He is the self proclaimed "starting point guard of the Washington Slizzards", a group of young talented individuals who are involved in several creative indevors from music to clothing. With two music videos (Capital of Hate & Washington Slizzards) under his belt, Nebyu is preparing to release his 2nd EP "Babylon’s Most Wanted". Slated to release the day after Christmas, this EP is a collection of songs dealing with life for a young black male in Washington, DC from the perspective of an Uptown Ethiopian Rasta.
