Today in San Francisco, Global Exchange and CODEPINK will meet with the socially conscious Hip Hop duo, Obsesion, from Cuba!

Obsesion is a prominent Cuban hip-hop group that has been an integral part of the Havana Hip-Hop scene since it’s inception. Their work focuses on issues of race and the Afrocuban identity. During Obsesion’s last visit to the United States in 2006, they were invited to take part in a historical performance at the Apollo Theater with The Roots, Mos Def, and Kanye West. Obsesion has appeared in multiple documentaries about Cuban hip-hop such as “Inventos: Hip Hip Cubana.” Additionally, the group has been featured in literary works such as Sujatha Fernandez’s Cuba Represent! Cuban Arts, State Power, and the Making of New Revolutionary Cultures.
