Jogja Hip Hop

Jogja Hip Hop Foundation is the foremost Javanese hip hop group, melding global rhythms and traditional Javanese language into an expression simultaneously local and universal.  The group raps in Javanese--from classical verses to traditional curses, street slang and social protest messages.  Established to reflect diversity and pluralism, they create a new musical language that reaches people across cultures.
See Jogja Hip Hop Foundation at Asia Society, Saturday, May 14, 8pm. Free pre-performance lecture at 7pm.
