Mainstream vs Underground Hip Hop in India: a talk with DIVINE

04 Jun 2019, 11:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Worldwide Village
Language:
English

Far from being ‘all about Bollywood’, today’s Indian music industry is increasingly about the explosive growth of regional sounds and myriad non-film genres, as a new, young, digital audience is getting to decide its music tastes for itself. Hip hop particularly is in rapid ascent, starting originally with the commercial Indian hip hop sounds of the ‘00s and ‘10s, but now with a new truly representative hip hop born on the streets of India, speaking on behalf of the Indian daily experience.

  

With a recent blockbuster film, Gully Boy, based on his rise from the streets, and his newly launched label Gully Gang, DIVINE is the undisputed face of this movement. This panel affords a unique view into the heart of this scene through the eyes of its main protagonist, along with his manager and lawyer ensuring we really get into the details.
