Africa music – Swahili rap: X Plastaz (Hi Quality version)

August 23, 2008 by  

High Quality version (select ‘watch in high quality’).
Not Bongo Flava, this is East African / Tanzanian Hip Hop. Last video of the late mc Faza Nelly from X Plastaz, Tanzania’s most well known hip hop crew who merge Swahili rap and traditional Maasai music. This video to the song ‘Nini dhambi kwa mwenye dhiki?’ about poverty in Tanzania was partly recorded on top of Ol Doinyo Lengai, a remote, active volcano and the Maasai’s ‘Mountain of God’ which had its 1st major eruption in years the day after Nelly died.

Languages: Kiswahili and Maa (kiMaasai)
