Wala Bok: Une histoire orale du hip hop au Senegal

Author(s): SENGHOR, Fatou Kande
ISBN13/Barcode: 9782359260151
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
'Wala Bok: An Oral History of Hip Hop in Senegal' explores and reflects on the evolution of generations of hip hop artistes and practitioners, from the early pioneers to the new kids on the block, producers, and the social critics involved in this complex movement. In Senegal, hip hop has been very political from the go, from 'Set Setal' cleanliness campaigns of the 80s and 90s, to the Y'en a marre movement that became instrumental to derailing the monarchic wishes of an octogenarian president to usher in a second 'alternance' in 2012. The images and testimonies of this movement, shaped by the recognition for cultural diversity and motivated by the quest for making the world a better place, unveil a heterogeneous eclectic community pulled between individual artistic promotion and political commitment.

The volume includes photographs and contributions from scholars such as Greg Thomas, Eugene Adams, Ousmane Sène, Abdoulaye Niang and many hip hop artistes and practitioners in Senegal including Daara J Family, Didier Awadi, Fou Malade, Keur Gui, Daddy Bibson, Lord Alajiman, Chronik 2H, ALIF, Moona, Rapattack and many others.
