Rap For Tibet

The Rap for Tibet project started after the Dalai Lama’s visit to Zurich in 2005 and is an awareness campaign of Tibetan Youth Association in Europe. Tibet has been officially rapped, sprayed, breakdanced and beatboxed for four times already – in a celebration of hip hop. The movement continues to grow as the goals of the old school hip hop movement and the Tibet movement are more similar than would appear at first sight: to express yourself freely, to say what you think, to dance whatever you feel, to paint whatever is in your head, freedoms not afforded to Tibetans inside Tibet.
