Journal Rappé – social criticism wrapped in hip-hop

Post-colonialism, identity, environmental issues, cultural heritage and development in Africa – these are the topics of the Journal Rappé project. Senegalese hip-hop stars Keyti and Xuman produced ten new episodes of the rapped news format in their studios in Dakar in May 2020. “We want to change Africa’s narrative when it comes to how the rest of the world sees the continent,” explains Keyti. The ten video episodes were made possible through a partnership between the Munich Biennale, the Music in Africa Foundation, Siemens Stiftung and the Goethe-Institut.
