In 1973, a man called Kool Herc got to his sister's birthday party to play some music.
Hitting« play » he didn't know what he was about to start...
If you think Run DMC invented rap, if you believe that Grand Master Flash is the first Hip Hop DJ or if you simply want to show off at parties by becoming a brainiac about the birth of Hip Hop, then listen to this audio documentary.
It's the sound of (musical) history!
