A three-man squadron led by Darian Dauchan, The Mighty Third Rail mixes elements of hip-hop poetry, beatboxing, violin, and bass. Frontman Darian is both a Broadway performer (Twentieth Century) and an acclaimed poet, having been named 2007 Grand Slam Champion of the Bowery Poetry Club’s Urbana Slam Team. Together with avant-garde jazz artists Curtis Stewart and Ian J. Baggette, this bold, urban collective creates politically challenging works that push the boundaries of hip-hop to define the next generation’s voice.
