Nag Champa is a collective of DC musicians pursuing a genre-bending vision of musical future. The group is not unlike Christian Scott’s Stretch Music, bringing in elements of jazz, avant-garde-garde, hip-hop and world music influences as well as some go-go to reflect the spirit of the members’ home town.
