Recently in the last year or so, there have been a lot more community events showcasing the talent of Rocinha and visitors. The Praca de Roupa Suja which is normally used for Futsal or basketball has seen an increase of community events. Today was no different with the ROCINHA HIP HOP - "Reducao de Danos" (Reduction of Damage).
The event started around 12 noon with visits from Dj's, MC's and Break Dancers from as far away as Sao Paulo. Some of Rocinha's MC's were also present,
Mc Bolt, Weelf Real and Mc Oz. And Luck GBCR who is the director of the hip hop group called GBCR was also there helping to promote the event. Dj Marcelinho MG was on the turntables!
Here is a video from one of the dance offs between Mari and Uni
