This competition is judged, according to the organizers, by three big names on the global hip-hop scene, namely Tweet boogie (international dancer and choreographer who has worked with a number of stars, such as 50 Cent, Shakira, Mary J Blige or Janet Jackson), German Storm and French Kane Wung.
Also on the menu, the third Moroccan Beatbox Championship. The championship will be carried this year by the world champion Alhexinho (France) 201
The initiators of the first edition of the “Casablanca International HipHop Festival On-line Edition” have planned to organize the 1st Royal Jam beatbox. This international beatbox competition, the first of its kind in Morocco, invites artists from the region, from Europe but also across the Atlantic, to meet an exceptional jury consisting of international champions in their category.
But that’s not all!
In addition to the competition, hip-hoppers from all over the world, regardless of level, will have the opportunity to discover their favorite artists from a different angle and benefit from their advice thanks to the workshops that will be posted online from this month – here on the official festival page @Casablancahiphopfestival (instagram and Facebook).
