Professor Suzi Analogue

Directed by producer/songwriter/composer Professor Suzi Analogue, Hip Hop Ensemble is UNC’s first performance ensemble dedicated to exploring vast musical techniques based in hip hop’s rich cultural traditions and global impact. Hip Hop Ensemble provides the collaborative space to blend electronic, acoustic, and vocal music creation into exciting sonic experiences to engage and amplify community. We will study performance styles of many musicians and live production teams to develop skills as collaborative musicians and performers.


Hip Hop Ensemble can be taken for one credit hour and is open to all Carolina undergraduate and graduate students, regardless of major. Musicians and non-musicians are welcomed, though it is encouraged that students possess a particular interest in hip hop sound and culture. Students interested in creating live audio/visual, and movement-based experiences through hip hop performances are also encouraged to join.

Interested students are required to complete this form (, and attend weekly music clinics that include jams and rehearsals. All students are expected to actively participate in all live performances.

Hip Hop Ensemble meets once weekly on Wednesdays from 6 pm – 8 pm in Hill Hall 103.

Suzi Analogue performs in front of a live crowd.
