Hip Hop is Global :: Los Aldeanos

The beauty of hip hop is that it's the voice of the people. It's the stories of underrepresented communities. That's what you get w/Los Aldeanos.

Check out the duo in this long form video. Love the beat. Love to hear them speak in detail about their passion for hip hop. I only watched this video, but I am anxious to check out the rest of their project. Nice vid too. Thanks for the subtitles.

See full report...

Hip hoppers, even if you can't get out of your hood, you can be inspired by someone else's ... kfox.

Thank you Kim!! Nice blog! Los Aldeanos will appreciate your words-- I'm hoping to hook up with them later this year, in concert. Until then, enjoy these other videos the rap community of Cuba has made with them:

Peace- Alex

“This is dedicated to those who want to destroy our dreams, because to take a song from one heart to another we don’t need letters of invitation, nor emigration clearances, we only need the right cause.”
-Los Aldeanos

The exclusive international on-line release of the music video for “La Naranja se Picó” by Cuban rap duo Los Aldeanos is set for May 7th at:

“La Naranja se Picó” is the furious response by El B for being negated his Cuban emigration clearance two years in a row to represent as Cuba’s national freestyle champion at Red Bull’s international “Cockfight” competition in Venezuela (2007) and Mexico (2008). The song appears in Los Aldeanos’ recent album, El Atropello.
