Hip Hop Week in the Cambridge Evening News
Ken drops in for hip hop bop
LOCKING, popping, rapping, mixing and scratching have taken place in Cambridge.
It's all part of Cambridge Hip Hop Week at the St Paul's Centre in Hills Road, which celebrates all aspects of hip hop culture, from the dancing and the music to the graffiti art and fashion.
The series of workshops and events have been organised by Sin Cru, a Cambridge-based community group featuring DJs, graffiti artists and dancers.
Local youngsters try out their skills, watched by Ken Swift and Nako.
The group also feature beat boxers who recreate the beat and rhythm of hip hop tunes using just their mouths. Some of the big names appearing during the week include top New York breakdancer Ken Swift and superdancer Nako, plus UK rapper Jehst.
The week will culminate tomorrow (Friday, 04 April) with the Urban Sinfonie event which runs from 7.30pm to midnight and features breakdancing battles and hip hop DJs.
