7:00 pm – Roundtable on the History of hip hop music on the outskirts of Madrid

with Ana Mayúscula, El Chojin and Frank T. Moderated by Lucía Mbomío

Hip hop culture provided a shared identity on the outskirts of big cities where migrants from different parts of Spain settled. These outlying neighbourhoods and towns, surrounding major cities, were conscious that everything outside the city centre was left to its own devices. The need to tell their own stories about what was happening to them led them to rhyme their stories and to graffiti them on its walls.
