Dakar Bounce

Maga Bo made this great mini-documentary/interview with Senegalese rappers Xuman and Keyti. These guys speak articulately and positely about the globalization of hip-hop, and the cross-breeding of musical influences from around the world.

Now with internet, the world is like an international village… I can know what’s going on in Brazil today… I can know what’s happening in China; I can know what’s happening in Iraq… I can even make music with people living there from the internet.
