About Guerrilla Radio: The Hip-Hop
Struggle Under Castro
Journey through a Cuba that few Americans know exists. Hundreds
of hip-hop groups are forming across the island, inspired entirely
by love of the music. Unlike hip-hop in the United States, there's
no promise of a better life if Cuban rappers produce a hit.
They work against a stark backdrop of prostitution, black-market
capitalism and poverty, in part because the typical Cuban makes
only $15 a month. Complicating matters is a police force that
tosses the rappers in jail if their songs criticize Fidel Castro
or his communist government.
Even if you don't care for hip-hop, you will be fascinated
by the struggle of the Cuban people and what theyre doing
The Buena Vista Social Club was the music of Cubas past;
Guerrilla Radio is the music of Cuba's future.
