Hip Hop – An Introduction
The term “Hip Hop” is a combination of two words, “Hip” which means current or in the know and “Hop” as in the jumping movement.
They say that Hip-Hop as a musical genre and as an artistic dance form originated somewhere in the Bronx in New York during the 1970’s. Hip Hop originally was a creative expression of the suburban African-American and Hispanic-American communities but gradually spread across communities, regions and countries and is now popular among dance enthusiasts around the world.
Hip Hop music began when DJs started experimenting with rhythmic beats in loops, then with rap vocals, hard-hitting lyrics and beatboxing. All this accompanied with deep bass, innovative guitar strumming and high-end sound effects.
While this new kind of music was gaining acceptance and popularity, particular complimentary styles of dressing, dance and art were also making way into the lives of fans. This is how Hip Hop as a dance form and Graffiti as an art form came into being. Today, music, dance and graffiti, all are essentials part of the Hip-Hop culture.
