30 days of Tanzanian hip hop: Day 9 Wachata Crew

30 days of Tanzanian hip hop: Day 9 – Wachata Crew. The dopest graffiti crew in Tanzania. Their works can be seen all over Dar es Salaam, including Nafasi Art Space in Mikocheni. Each of the artists represents graffiti as an element of hip hop but also represents graffiti as a stand alone art that can be appreciated with other forms of fine art.
