*DJ Leidis, Majori and Las Krudas were instrumental in the
creation of "Omega Kilay," the first and only women's Hip
Hop collective in Cuba. Their music continues to challenge
how society looks at the roles of woman while addressing
issues of racism, sexism, and homophobia.

*Inventos: Hip Hop Cubano is an award winning documentary

power of Hip Hop in transcending cultural barriers and
creating a collective community.This documentary provides
insight into the contemporary political situation in Cuba
