I recommend this perfect exhibition whose scenography was created by Akhenaton, the leader of the French rap band. It is complete and playful. It mixes pictures, sounds, emblematic pieces, videos… and smartly explains the origins of the movement born in 1973 in the Bronx.
Hip-hop is not only a music style using soul and funk rythmes, but also a kind of dance, a way of thinking, a true way of living.
This exhibition is a return to the roots which enables us to better understand the influences of the hip-hop culture in our current world and in the Arabic area.
A nice musical and artistic digression that I recommend to you !
