Malabo International Hip Hop Festival
If you happen to be in the country at the time, this is a music festival not to miss.
The power of music.
Music and dance are two of the great passions of the people of Equatorial Guinea. Along with traditional African rhythms, in recent years Latin American music has become fashionable and is now present in most clubs in Malabo. Hip hop has also won many followers, among other things, thanks to the success of the Malabo International Hip Hop Festival, which in November 2013 held its sixth edition. The event, sponsored by the US Embassy in Equatorial Guinea and organized by the Cultural Centre of Spain in Malabo, the Cultural Institute of French Expression (ICEF) and the Equatorial Guinean Cultural centre, each year brings together the best rappers from Guinea and other parts of the world. Closely related to urban culture, the festival also hosts dance performances and workshops on musical creation, studio postproduction and even break dancing.
