On Sept 14th, 2008 the Condor & Eagle Alliance in conjunction with Los Angeles Indigenous Peoples Alliance (LAIPA) bring you “The 2nd International Indigenous Hip Hop Gathering” featuring artists from throughout the western hemisphere.
The moment Hip Hop was born it became a global phenomena and it permeated every barrio, reservation, community, favela, legua, and city. Hip Hop artists became street corner reporters, informing the world the happenings of the poor, the unwanted, and the forgotten. Today these artists with an indigenous identity & thought continue that tradition by reporting through rhymes that story of their people.
This September the “International Indigenous Hip Hop Gathering” brings together the 4 elements of Hip Hop from all 4 directions.
The event will feature traditional dance, both Southern (Azteca) & Northern Native, DJ’s and a live graff art expo.
