Beats Without Boundaries
Join us 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 Ashanthi 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 (143BandMusic), 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.
  • Awate, Paigey Cakey, Raxstar, Sunit Music, and Prince Rapid. This stellar line-up is topped off with Turkish Dcypha on the decks and VJ Coco providing a visual feast.

This is a unique opportunity to see these artists come together to perform in the UK.

Southbank Centre’s Alchemy has commissioned this new international music performance in partnership with the British Council and Alchemy national partners: Black Country Touring, Cast Doncaster and Oldham Coliseum Theatre, generously supported by Arts Council England.
