Hip hop in the red land

Days ago, the hip hop festival, Freestyle modality, was held in the city of Posadas. We tell you all about these urban payers.


Hip hop, or rap, is one of the most widespread music genres among young people around the world.  In the province of Misiones, hip hop is on the ground . High Quality Crew, a group of urban dancers from the city of Posadas, is already recognized worldwide. This year they will participate in the 2020 Hip Hop World Cup in Arizona, United States. But hip hop in Misiones is much more than international awards. It is an urban and  free expression  movement that spans young people from all the neighborhoods of the province.

 The Festival 

The event took place on Sunday 2 February in the city of Posadas. The festival was organized by the Ministry of Culture and the Cultural Movement Hiding Place in Puerto Rico. This group, through hip hop, is carried out freestyle competitions as a way to promote free expression. These “battles”, in which thousands of young missionaries are recounted, are a tool of social containment.

From the organization of the battle of freestyle, Shuster commented on the  origins of hip hop in missionary land . “From Puerto Rico is born the cultural movement Hiding Place, which makes the competitions of  frees  t  yle . This time we are accompanied by the Province, something very good because it makes visible this expression of young people in the  neighborhoods . An expression that is often very marginalized as art and culture.”

In addition, Shuster explained that hip hop always denounced injustices and current exclusion in Argentina and Misiones. Freestyle also shares the same task. It is the tool of expression of young people from remote neighborhoods. That is why their rhymes speak of what they see, about poverty, marginalization, discrimination, violence.  However, the gender is not purely protest. He also talks about the good, about friendship, projects and dreams. 

The battle had, at times, epic dyes, and proved that the dictionary is not an outdated tool. Ruru de Garupá won 1st place. Llave Maestra and Gemma (the only female participant) won the 2nd and 3rd respectively. The winners received as awards audio recording vouchers and video clips for the realization of their  songs .
