Hip Hop in Rosario

On October 4, the Embassy and the Ministry of Culture and Education of Rosario hosted “Enclave Hip Hop,” a day of music, film and cultural exchange. The workshop, which took place at CMD Oeste “Felipe Moré,” highlighted forms of creative expression, such as DJing and breakdancing, as alternatives to crime and violence. Participants explored the similarities between hip hop culture in the U.S. and Argentina and how youth in both countries express themselves creatively through the arts.

Diane Ghogomu, an American film director who has been studying hip hop culture in Buenos Aires, presented her documentary “Buenos Aires Rap.” Following the documentary presentation, she lead a discussion with the participants who, in turn, were able to share their music and video productions. Chilean DJ, Sebastian Muñoz, complemented the discussion with an interactive workshop on music composition.
