We have worked in Bolivia before with the rap group Wayna Rap and hip hop organization KAI. First time was in 2009 with activities in both Denmark and Bolivia. We had a bigger project from 2010 to 2011 sponsored by Roskilde Festival where we reached more than 4,000 marginalized adolescents and youth. Bolivia is a priority country for us so we were happy to travel back to El Alto in October 2015 and develop our partnership with KAI.
Our cooperation with KAI is called Hip Hop Uta. “Uta” means “Home” in Aymara, which is one of the local indigenous languages in Bolivia. Hip Hop Uta is going to be a hip hop centre in El Alto for disadvantaged adolescents and youth. The centre will be managed by KAI and will provide income-generating activities as well as free hip hop workshops such as breakdance, rap, graffiti and street art.
