About the Event

Led by Kuf Knotz & Christine Elise, this will be an interactive workshop centered in the power that music has to connect, to heal and to spark change. 

We're excited to welcome the dynamic duo MC/ Poet/Songwriter Kuf Knotz & classically trained Harpist/Guitarist/Pianist/Vocalist Christine Elise to the Bottom. Together, they create unique music that blends Küf’s hip-hop poetry with deep grooves of soul, while sun-kissed beats are laced with Christine’s melodic harp and ethereal vocals. For their newest album titled Hypnagogia, the unlikely pair connected with a similar vision, wanting to create positive, forward-thinking music driven by a strong message.
