Senegal: hip hop meets politics

Tune Your World posts a documentary, African Underground: Democracy in Dakar, which shows the role of hip hop in Senegalese politics, “Our friends at Nomadic Wax are in Senegal this month producing a unique documentary film, called ‘African Underground: Democracy in Dakar’, showing how local hip-hop is shaping the current Presidential Election. Each week they are sending back 5-10 minute video segments. This “real-time” documentary style allows for immediate discussion of music and politics in Senegal.”
