Sat 3 June: Beats Without Boundaries @ CAST Doncaster

Join Alchemy Doncaster for an electrifying night of international hip-hop as artists from South Asia and the UK mix rhymes to sound system beats, against a backdrop of video art.

Beats Without Boundaries is the culmination of an international project, pairing UK artists with South Asian rappers, crossing cultural and geographical borders through a shared love of hip-hop.

The line-up of artists features pioneers in their home countries who don’t shy away from important issues, including:

  • Rapper Black Zang, host of the first ever hip-hop radio show in Bangladesh.
  • Sri Lankan rapper, singer and songwriter Ashanti De Alwis, the first Sri Lankan female rapper to be signed with Sony Music and Universal Music.
  • Paradise, Afghanistan’s first female rapper, and partner Diverse, who make tracks speaking out for women’s rights in Afghanistan.
  • Two artists making waves in India, pioneer of feminist rap Dee MC, and Naezy, whose popularity has soared thanks to his music about politics and poverty.

This is a unique opportunity to see these artists come together to perform in the UK. Tickets are priced £12.50-£15.50. Check out the line-up with the music videos below.
