War Child

Filed under: Foreign Affairs,Music — bobbystrange @ 3:49 pm

There is a new documentary out about Emmanuel Jal called War Child, about the  Sudanese child soldier turned East African rap star.  His music fuses traditional Sudanese, even Arab vibes with hip-hop, and his verses, of course, are shockingly biographical.  I interviewed him a few years ago for Global Rhythm, and penned this article about the young phenom.
