The top-notch Azuki NFT collection joined hands with legendary Korean hip-hop music group Epik High, to curate the NFT collection to celebrate their upcoming performance at the notorious music festival Coachella. On April 10, Azuki revealed a poster featuring Epik High to announce the partnership.
The poster features Epik High members Tablo, Mithra Jin, and DJ Tukutz. In the poster, while Tablo is holding his heart, Mithra Jin and DJ Tukutz are holding an ax and a case, respectively.
Azuki stated in a tweet, “Epik High have long been pioneers in Asian culture and were the first Korean act to ever perform at Coachella in 2016.”
Coachella is the grand music event dedicated to a group of music artists, and Epik High members were the first group to perform a Korean act at Coachella in 2016. With this year’s Coachella act, it will become the first Korean group to make a comeback to the event.
According to the event schedule, this year the event will start on April 15 and end on April 24. Epik High’s performance is scheduled for April 15 and April 22.
The Epik High group has been active since 2003. Some famous tracks of this group are Rain Song, Can You Hear My Heart, Gray So Gray among others.
Epik High’s Tablo stated about this exciting collaboration “For Epik High’s Coachella set, I’m working w/one of my favorite artists Arnold Tsang, who is now the art director at Azuki. Been a fan since his past work in comics (Street Fighter!) & Overwatch, so it’s surreal seeing ourselves come to life via his art!”
