From Iraq with Hip Hop, The Hiplomacy Tour
First Step Iraq, is comprised of dancers and rappers from Baghdad, Basra, Erbil and Sulaymaniyah, Iraq. The Iraqi artists will present a show that reflects their daily struggle to practice their craft and showcase their talent in the often hostile environment of their home country.
The group of six that comprise First Step Iraq was chosen from more than 50 performers who auditioned over the summer as part of the YES Academy Iraq, a program of American Voices in partnership with the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.
Emmanuel is honored to host First Step Iraq as part of our new initiative, Education For Peace.
