Great Integrations:A Chamber HipHop Opera on the Night of 2012 Apocalypse

“The future of hip hop.”- East Bay Express

“Mik Nawooj is thirsty to change the name of the game.” – MTV

“The most ambitious is “Great Integration: A Chamber Hip-Hop Opera,” a millennial allegory with a Black Swordsman… set over JooWan Kim’s moody piano score.” -The New Yorker

“A true blend of classical music and hip-hop.” – SF Bay Guardian

“Defies such categories as jazz, classical, and hip-hop” – Oakland Tribune

“Breaks established boundaries between genres and styles” – SF Examiner

“Nobody has ever attempted anything like this on such a large scale, or with such sophistication” – NPR

“A composer and ensemble destined for greatness.” – 21st Century Music

“Ensemble Mik Nawooj sounds like something Wu-Tang Clan producer The RZA might conjure up if he got his hands on the Kronos Quartet:… When the Wu-Tang entered the 36 Chambers, they probably didn’t expect an actual chamber music ensemble to be behind door 35. But who ever said hip-hop had to use two turntables and a microphone?” – SF Weekly
