Part of TeachRock's LADAMA collection, this lesson allows students to explore Afro-Colombian cultural identity from the Pacific Coast by examining the music and lyrics of ChocQuibTown, one of the most influential modern bands in Colombia. They will investigate how ChocQuibTown uses Rap and Hip Hop culture to celebrate where they are from, and learn what it means to rapear (rap) and freestalear (freestyle) in Colombia. Students then write their own verses in Spanish after familiarizing themselves with ChocQuibTown’s original song, “Somos Pacífico,” an anthem of the Pacific Coastal Region of Colombia.
