Zimbabwe

Residency Recap

Between February 14 and February 29, 2015, hip hop artists Kane Smego (MC), Juan Gomez (DJ), JaciCaprice (Beatmaker) and Kenneth “Ken Fury” Marez (Dancer) traveled to Harare, Zimbabwe as part of the Next Level program.

The Next Level Academy in Zimbabwe was hosted by the Magamba Network and the Jiblika Dance Trust. Through the Academy, artist-educators offered workshops on hip hop artistry, entrepreneurship, and conflict transformation. Next Level’s Team Zimbabwe also participated in an outreach event at St. Peter’s School in the Glen Norah Township, located just outside of Harare. Over 600 audience members attended the residency’s two final showcases, which featured performances from both artist-educators and their student-collaborators.

Team Zimbabwe is part of a larger Next Level cohort of American MCs, DJs, beatmakers, and hip hop dancers seeking to create global community through hip hop culture.
