An unprecedented three-country musical collaboration. French-German-Filipino talents at its gangsta best!

MAY 25 - JUNE 1, 2010
Rap in Tondo is a collaborative cultural and social project that aims to strengthen artistic exchange between Filipino and European artists and music professionals and to support the development of the Philippines' emerging music scene.

Supported by Alliance Francaise de Manille and Goethe Institut together with Tondo Asenso and 8Glasses Productions. This is an attempt at discovering and exploring common bonds between hiphop artists, bridging cultural differences, and forging meaningful ties through an artistic project.

Is music, particularly hip hop, an effective tool in establishing cross-cultural understanding among the youth?

This is what we seek to find out through this unprecedented endeavour.

This project will involve the inhabitants of Tondo, one of the most densely populated and poorest areas of land in the world, through various events (3- day workshop in Tondo from May 25 to 27, warm-up concerts and a final show in Tondo on May 29).

The highlight of the project will be a hip hop competition on the basketball field of Tondo involving Filipino, German and French artists, street children and Tondo dwellers.
