Synopsis

Despite its genesis in the Bronx, Hip-Hop has become a universal language spoken across all cultures. Shake The Dust celebrates this global unity by chronicling three different break dance crews in the slums of Uganda, Yemen and Cambodia where Hip-Hop serves as a saving grace from the drugs, depression and poverty grasping youth. Including music from Executive Producer Nas and Oscar-winning artist Common, this film is highly recommended for dance and hip-hop organizations, as well as high school and university classes in African Studies, Globalization, Musicology, Non-profit Studies, and Sociology.
