Chants and the Rapper
In this session we will explore the overlap between Gregorian chant and Hip Hop. We'll investigate how both expressions have been used to engage in social resistance, radical honesty, and the structuring of alternative culture. There will also be a workshop component offering a space to experiment with both forms in a low stakes and fun setting.
