Rap music has always been a cultural movement with the ability of connecting people, neighborhoods, cities and countries. Through the power of rhythm and rhyme, language and music, rap has become a powerful phenomenon to create sensations in our body and mind, as well as a great way of expression for young people all over the world; a musical style that allows them to reclaim their own voice and place in the world.
During the workshop, leaded by Rap Academy, participants will explore creative techniques of rap and learn how to hold a microphone to tell their own stories. With the guidance of expert DJs and MCs, and based on rap examples from Spain and Europe, they will also discover all the secrets of composition, improvisation and staging.
For five days, participants will work in groups to reflect on a specific topic related to Europe. Along the workshop, they will create their own compositions and leave a testimony of everything learned, by recording a final video clip that will be screened at the Etopia Urban Fest, planned for the next 21st of September.
This workshop, aimed at teenagers between 15 and 18 years old, will take place at Etopia Center for Art and Technology from the 1st to the 5th of July, as part of the U R ART activities in Etopia.
