Recorded August 2016 during the 12th annual Hip Hop Symposium in Havana, Cuba. Part of documentary film project "Hip Hop Esta Vivo en Cuba".
"Hip Hop Esta Vivo en Cuba" is a short documentary that provides a glimpse into the Cuban Hip Hop scene at a moment of uncertain change between the United States and Cuba. Hip Hop as a global movement can be a platform for Cuban artists. The Normalization process would help empower the cuban hip hop community, enabling them to have a voice during a time of diplomatic tensions. This normalization process is now being threatened.
This project brought together artists from the United States & Cuban in a spirit of collaboration. The album offers an eclectic mix of artists, sounds, and themes and supports the film's narrative that Cuban Hip Hop can be part a global movement for change.
