Hop Fu: Hip-hop meets Kung Fu
Hop Fu performs a live score for the classic Hong Kong film Super Ninjas.
DJ IXL and DJ Excess of the Kolabz Crew, also known as Hop Fu, memorably rocked the Meyer Auditorium in 2007 with their live score for Prodigal Son. They now return to perform a live score for the classic Hong Kong film Super Ninjas. Watch as a Chinese kung fu family faces off against a squad of deadly ninjas—accompanied by the hard-hitting sounds of a turntable duel. Great costumes and an array of special weapons make this film a must-see, and Hop Fu’s battling beats take the hip-hop/kung fu connection to a whole new level. Stay afterward for a Q&A with the DJs and a hands-on scratching lesson.
