“Will captivate your eyes and ears”
“a chamber orchestra for the 21st century”
– The New York Times
“Nu Deco Ensemble is an off-the-beaten-classical-hall-track orchestra that focuses on adapting the work of living composers and collaborating with musicians, choreographers, dancers and mixed media artists from a variety of genres.”
The innovative hybrid orchestra, Nu Deco Ensemble, reimagine the music of Outkast in their latest live performance video, titled “Outkast Suite: A Symphonic Portrait.” Nu Deco Ensemble is quickly becoming known for their reimagining of iconic contemporary artists.
The new video finds the 30-piece orchestra performing a symphonic suite of some of Outkast’s greatest hits, including “Rosa Parks,” “Humble Mumble,” and“Hey Ya!”
“Outkast pushes and pulls, and at times even steps outside the boundaries of hip-hop, which is one of the many reasons we are such fans and that their music has become a key part of our repertoire.” Nu Deco Ensemble’s co-founder Sam Hyken remarks.
Similarly, Nu Deco Ensemble’s core mission is to create compelling and transformative genre-bending musical experiences that inspire, enrich, and connect new and diverse audiences and artists.
“Outkast manage to both innovate with styles, lyricism, and melodies, but apply and fuse the genres of funk, jazz, drum and bass, techno, and even Broadway into a whole new, distinctively original sound” Jacomo Bairos, Nu Deco Ensemble’s co-foudner adds.
