We are so excited for our newest program: The Tiny DAP Concerts!

As more eyes fall on New England Hip Hop, Tiny DAP aims to boost the signal of Boston’s hardest working hidden gems with an intimate, virtual showcase inspired by NPR's “Tiny Desk Concert” -- with all its national importance, but with a focus on what makes our city unique.

This web series (produced by Boston Compass Newspaper and Smokehouse Media) will offer professionally produced, pre-recorded performances highlighting emerging talent from Greater Boston artists who are at the top of their class in New England Hip Hop. Season 1 features five artists from the DAP Open Mic community and is funded by The Boston Foundation's Live Arts Boston Grant. Episodes will be dropping on the following schedule!
