Inspired Hip Hop Colombia
Inspired Hip Hop Colombia is a story shot in 2013 about major influential hip hop artists in Colombia’s main cities, Bogotá and Medellin that portrays artists in a context where they find inspiration for their lyrics and music. Within the ‘comunas’ (slums) of Medellin, downtown and south Bogotá hip hop artists in Colombia get inspired by their everyday contexts like the neighbourhoods they grew up, the places they rehearse and the people that inspire them. Everyday life in these neighbourhoods presents internal wars, violence and social inequity. However, there is an environment of transformation, music’s cultural empowerment, gender rights, and hope for social change that they have been actively involved in. Being part of various cultural, music, art and social movements these artists articulate a new reality through their social work and music.
