Rhythm, Rap, and Resistance with Rebel Diaz
Hip Hop and Activism Workshop: MCC Lounge/2 PM
Performance: MCC Theater/7:30 PM
Hermanos RodStarz and G1, known as Rebel Diaz, are sons of political refugees from Chile who fled a CIA-funded dictatorship in the 1970s. Revolution raised them, and the culture of Hip-Hop provided them their own Nueva Canción: a genre of music that emerged during the resistance period in Chile. Through rap, Rebel Diaz has been sharing their stories and those of their people; el barrio, the hood, the poor, los inmigrantes. Hip-Hop and a vision for liberation have taken them around the world. Join Rebel Diaz for a workshop on how hip hop can be used as a platform for activism, followed by a performance.
