H-Kayne: Hip-Hop Moroccan Style

Sorry, there are no airings at this time. Please check this page for future updates.
Hip-hop has only taken hold in Morocco in recent years, and it is largely thanks to H-Kayne, a group of 4 young men from the central city of Meknes who grew up listening to Biggie and Tupac, then forged their own style. It fuses western beats with some traditional Moroccan instruments and melodies, and lyrically it speaks out - often wittily - against corruption and for individual freedom. Interweaving scenes in their hometown, comments from fans, excerpts from their video about Internet addicition, and a performance before an adoring crowd in Casablanca, the film shows why H-Kayne has connected with Moroccan youth and speaks for them.
