Another of those positive news stories you rarely hear about. This is the story of an ‘international exchange’ of rap artists between Dublin and Holland, and the resulting album. The album is available at ‘name your price’ and the sounds of young Dutch and Dublin rap artists are within!
CROSSING BORDERS WITH HIP HOP AND RAP
‘Crossing Borders with Hip Hop and Rap’ was an international exchange between young rappers, beat makers, singers and producers from Holland and Dublin. The first exchange took place in July, when 10 locally selected young people from PYP traveled to Nijmegen in Holland for a week long musical collaboration, during which time they developed a new album entitled ‘Dutch2Dublin’. Now it was time for the Dutch participants to land in Ballymun. Over one week, they developed new music videos and performed on the ‘Otherworld’ main stage on Halloween night.

You can now see the results of this successful collaboration through their album that is now available on band camp:
