What it is to be a woman in the hip hop scene in Central America, and which are the problems that we, as women, face? A discussion with the three members of SOMOS GUERRERAS. Somos Guerreras is a project of three of the
leading female rappers of Central America: Rebeca Lane (Guatemala), Audry Funk (Mexico) and Nakury (Costa Rica). “The level of gender violence in freestyle rhyming battles, and in mainstream rap, can be horrific,” raps Rebeca Lane. This emerging generation of female MCs is interested in empowerment, collaboration and education through their lyrics.
We are co-presenting this event with Tierra Narrative, a multimedia storytelling platform dedicated to the creation of new narratives through transnational cultural production between the Central American diaspora and the homeland, nuestra tierra.
