Rap and Hip-hop
Hip-hop is a genre of music most often characterised by a strong, rhythmic beat and a rapping vocal track. The genre originated in New York City in the 1970s as a cultural exchange among Black, Latino, and Caribbean youth and has grown into one of the most consumed genres of music in the United States and the world. In this workshop led by the Africa Center Hong Kong, participants will get to know more about the roots and cultural aspects of hip-hop and rap music. They will also learn how to compose raps!
Traditional and Modern Rites of Passage
We might associate rites of passage with something mystical or ancient. However, the transition from child to adult is a milestone in life which may involve a rite of passage! In the past, enduring hardships to prove your bravery and worth to the community were common practices, but do modern societies still hold on to the same beliefs and values? How do we define adulthood or eldership in our communities?
Join us as our group of international guests share about the events marking different stages of life in their own countries and discuss the important question: is age just a number?
