ABOUT THE FILM

Kenyan Hip-hop was initially regarded as a passing fad. Hip-hop was
eagerly dismissed by the media outlets and the general public during
it's shallow inception in the early ninety's. Hip-hop today has firmly
gained its roots in Kenya, while fusing its traditional music and
drawing major influence from America. This fusion has led to a new
entity-the birth of Genge Music.

Filming the documentary in Kenya, producer/director Michael Wanguhu,
enjoyed collaborative efforts from top-notch Kenyan producers, and
reigning hip-hop acts past and present, seeking to expose a culture
they have whole-heartedly embraced. The film is also punctuated with
footage of engaging live concert events. HIP HOP COLONY richly ties
key elements of hip hop, flexibility and talent which continue to
increase its dominance around the World one colony at a time.
