Soundz of the South: Hip Hop and Transitions
Soundz of the South (SOS) embarks on a Hiphop residency across the region in August and September 2018. Travelling from Cape Town to Windhoek, Luanda and then Harare, SOS will be collaborating with fellow cultural activists in each city in promoting freedom of expression in contexts of political uncertainty due to recent political transitions and shifts in heads of state in South Africa, Angola and Zimbabwe.
“The project will explore ways of uniting creative and cultural activists, preserving Hiphop activists’ freedom of expression, association and assembly. Focusing on mapping out ways of sustaining community livelihoods through Hiphop activism and collaborative production.”

In each city Soundz of the South aims to foster new social values and new forms of collective organising through collaborative workshops, music production and concerts.
