LIL BUCK @ CHAPEL HILL: A JOOKIN' JAM SESSION

Lil Buck hasn't merely been called "the Baryshnikov of Jookin'," the Memphis street dance style marked by intricate, swaggering footwork. Last year, for a Fashion Week video in New York, Lil Buck taught the Russian ballet superstar the liquid dance moves that propelled the Memphis native to marquee gigs with Yo-Yo Ma, Wynton Marsalis, Madonna, and the New York City Ballet. His high school ballet teacher first challenged him to connect hip-hop-based street dance with classical; since then, he's also plugged in jazz and international folk-music forms. This accounts for the tabla player and Galician bagpiper in his touring band, which also includes Brooklyn Rider violinist Johnny Gandelsman.
