"I Speak!" (Ana Atakalam) and The Hope of Global Hip Hop

The Hope of Hip-Hop and NYC's Urban Culture

Our aim with this special project component is to encourage international dialogue with Hip-Hop Ambassadors, while assessing the importance of the global influence of Hip-Hop culture and New York City's urban culture. Hip-Hop Artists around the world are developing a genuine consencus to meet, perform together and to learn about the true history of Hip-Hop, Hip-Hop's many subcultural components and to explore the diverse history of the NYC urban ethnic communities of which Hip-Hop has served as an empowering identity marker. The "natural," music fusions and dance styles of Hip-Hop which originated in the 'inner city," areas of New York City have permeated youth culture/street culture worldwide as a cultural phenomenon.

Some of the first questions and talking points we present to participants as we begin our international dialogue include:

  • What is Hip-Hop culture?
  • What type of people, cultures and languages were involved in the earliest days of the development of Hip-Hop?
  • What is rap music?
  • What are the differences between Hip-Hop culture and rap music?
  • The origins and transformation of Hip-Hop dance Styles
  • Graffiti and Taggin!
