UCLA Library Writer Series: Obsesión
Cuban hip hop duo, Obsesión, is in residence at UCLA from Wednesday, April 12 through Thursday, April 13. One of the most well-respected and longest-running hip hop groups in Cuba, Obsesión was formed in 1996 by Magia López and Alexey "el tipo este" Rodriguez. They've performed with the likes of The Roots, and their fan base includes Harry Belafonte, Mos Def, and Afrika Bambaata. They also form part of the collective Club del Espendru, which empowers Afrocuban culture and business in Havana.
Admission to both events is free; no reservations are required. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Co-sponsored by the Latin American Institute, Program on Caribbean Studies, Dept. of African American Studies, Dept. of Gender Studies, and the CSRC.
