Female Hip Hop Crew Makes Beats in Senegal | Beat Making Lab | PBS Digital Studios (by beatmakinglab)
“The people need a female rapper,” says Toussa, the president of GOTAL; an all-women’s collective of Senegalese rappers, producers, singers and beat makers who paired with a woman-led NGO called Speak Up Africa to write songs about global health issues in their communities.
Developed at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Beat Making Lab is a program that brings the tools and techniques of digital music making to young musicians in developing nations. Episodes documenting the experience in Senegal will air Wednesdays on PBS Digital Studios’ Beat Making Lab channel. Professor Pierce Freelon and producer Apple Juice Kid host.
