Rapolitics: Music as a free space

Meet the Egyptian activist rapper Yukka Shahin and the Iraqi singer and guitarist Adel Haley. In a talk, the two artists will unfold how music has formed their identity, been a free space as well as a path into new communities. Two short films about the artists are shown, and they will perform two showcase concerts. By giving the microphone to the young people from countries with political tensions and war and hearing their perspectives on the importance of music, RAPOLITICS aims to show how music can be a free space and a focal point for new friendships, communities and stories.
