Wu-Tang Clan formed in New York City’s Staten Island in the early 1990s. Led by the production of RZA, the group would define the East Coast sound of the U.S.A., releasing eight studio albums, including their seminal debut “Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers),” which not only reached triple platinum status, but earned its place as one of the greatest albums the hip-hop scene has ever produced.
Having as trademark the use of samples from martial arts films (their name is a reference to a 1983 martial arts movie), Wu-Tang Clan influenced and continue to influence the next generations of producers (such as Jay-Z, Nas and Kanye West) and laid down the foundations that led the scene to the recognition and commercial success it has experienced in recent years. At the same time, they asserted their independence from record labels and grew into successful entrepreneurs who created an empire that included everything from clothing and video games to books and acting credits.
Their live performances are a family and democratic affair, with every member of the crew representing the lyrical contributions to their back catalogue, as well as notable cuts their solo careers and the legacy of their departed brother and founding member, Ol‘ Dirty Bastard.
On Thursday, July 27th, at Plateia Nerou, we will have the pleasure of hosting the most iconic hip-hop crew of all time, in a historic performance that we have been waiting for years.
