Hip Hop for Peace in Havana
Singers, musical groups and dancers from Canada, the United States, France, Haiti and Colombia are expected to attend the Hip-Hop International Symposium to be held from August 17 to 20 in Havana.
The French choreographer Jeison Tousent has confirmed his participation and is scheduled to deliver a workshop on break-dance, an urban dance created in the Afro-American communities of New York.
The US rap group Intikana is also participating, as are the Canadian singers Lu Piensa and Vox Sambox, the Haitians Makendi and Edú and Colombians Jason and Lucía.
Under the slogan "Hip Hop for Peace", over 70 musicians, graffiti painters, DJs, dancers and specialists will meet in Havana to participate in workshops and lectures on this genre, its movements and body expressions.
This symposium, funded by the La Fabri K project on 2005, is aimed at creating a space for exchange between artists and activists who contribute with several community projects to the development of Hip Hop in Cuba.
