The hip-hop musician Christylez Bacon and Indian classical violinist Nistha Raj will play at The Atlas Performing Arts Center on Saturday and Sunday. Attendees can expect a mix of music and dance traditions in the latest installment of the “Washington Sound Museum” series.

“Washington Sound Museum is an extension of my personal artistic goal to promote cultural acceptance and unification through music,” Christylez Bacon told DCist. “Through these musical collaborations, we celebrate our differences and connect through our similarities, ultimately learning from each other.”

The shows are scheduled for 8 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. Tickets cost $25 each. An Indian tea reception will be held in the theater’s lobby at 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. A dance class with hip-hop and Indian steps will take place at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday.
