Music is Our Weapon

“The music is our weapon. We don’t have any pistols any canons or any bazookas. But we have our voice and it is a powerful weapon.”
Democracy in Dakar

After writing about Ugandan Hip Hop, we received an email from someone over at Sol Productions who is good friends with the Diamonds in the Rough crew. He let us know about another project related to hip hop and politics, which I thought I’d pass on to you all. Here are the trailers for their two new documentaries.

I think what the people over at Sol Productions and Nomadic Wax are doing to educate and inspire people is pretty badass. If any of you know of similar projects related to music, politics and activism, do let us know.
