About the show

Playing tracks by

Last Poets, Lyn Collins (feat. The J.B.'s), Shirley Ellis, Incredible bongo band, Lafayette Afro Rock Band and more.

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!

If you want some more:
U.S. Black Emancipation Speeches (1919-1969)
Le Chant De La Machine Mix (A Black Music History part 2)

Picture: 1520 Sedgwick Avenue (South Bronx) where Kool Herc organised what is considered the 1st Hip Hop block party in 1973.
