走近美国嘻哈音乐
5月10日 周二 18:30  

作为美国音乐最典型的代表之一,嘻哈音乐在1970年代诞生于纽约,后逐步发展成为包含音乐、时尚、舞蹈等多种元素的一种文化形式并在全世界范围内流行,当然也包括上海。本月,上海美国中心的音乐现场系列 Sessions@The ShAC 请到了旅居上海的美国音乐人Rodney Hollingsworth和Uche Sam,来带领大家体验嘻哈音乐的魅力,并分享他们创作的音乐。


Hip Hop is one of the most iconic forms of American music. Originally developed in 1970s New York City, hip hop is now a culture of its own with its own style, fashion and dance. We’re lucky that despite its brief lifetime, hip hop has spread to almost every corner of the globe, including our very own Shanghai. This month’s Sessions@theShAC celebrates hip hop culture and we’ve invited Rodney Hollingsworth and Uche Sam, two Shanghai-based American emcees, to talk about rap, freestyling and share some of their own music with you.
