Radio Asia Hip-hop Beats
Radio Asia Hip-Hop Beats presents selected artists from the alternative and mainstream hip-hop scene from India, Japan, Vietnam, Korea and Malaysia.
The compilation combines over sixty songs – unexpected mixtures of hip hop rhythms with jazz, funk and local musical vibes. The playlist was inspired by "Gully Boy" presented at the 14th Five Flavours Film Festival, a film based on the biographies of two cult Indian rappers, Divine and Naezy. Also present on the playlist is the Vietnamese rapper Wowy, the author of songs of the energetic "Rom" soundtrack. Japanese artists are represented, among others, by the female duo Chelmico, whose songs were featured in the movie "Daughters."
Radio Asia Festival is a music event which from 2013 brings closer the achievements of independent artists from South, East and South-East Asia. As part of Radio Asia, Warsaw's clubs and theaters have been filled with the songs of Buddhist monks and the ecstatic wailing of Korean rockers, wild songs of Chinese steppes and the moaning of a burning cello, masterpieces of minimalism and jazz stunts, synth-pop backgrounds and rebellious Thai soul. The next edition of the event is planned for December 2021.
Four Radio Asia music compilations provide unique energetic party rhythms for a New Year's Eve and soothing sounds for first January mornings!
