MUMBAI: BREEZER Vivid Shuffle, India’s biggest hip-hop league is all set for the league qualifiers round where the participants will battle against each other to be shortlisted and selected for teams by league ambassadors. This year, in a brand new league format, the festival which is organized by OML has become a platform that has brought avenues across music and art to Live Life In Colour alongside dance as well. Contestants who get selected in league qualifiers will be assigned their own league teams through an interesting team selection process led by the league ambassadors, Shantanu Maheshwari, Kr$na, JordIndian and Piyush & Shazia.
The League Qualifiers which is scheduled for the upcoming two weekends of January, will showcase battles across all 5 categories- Breaking, Popping, Graffiti, Rap and Hip-Hop Showcase.

Breaking qualifiers will be held in the subsequent weekend on January 30th and be judged by Bboy Wasim, Godhand and Cheno, followed by announcement of top 4 Graffiti entries which will be selected by one of India’s first female graffiti artists, Dizy One.

We’ve even transcended geographical boundaries by taking it virtual and thus, opening up entries from all nooks and corners of the country. The response has been overwhelming so far, it’s amazing to see the astounding talent and we’re thrilled to be able to provide a platform for budding artists to showcase their talent and be enablers in a small way in their journey,” said Arti Hajela, Senior Brand Manager, RTD, AMEA at Bacardi.

It has also brought enthusiasts and participants across avenues to learn and brush up on their talent with School of Shuffle workshops.
