Cuban hip-hop duo Krudas Cubensi use their music as a weapon to fight against oppression and to celebrate the life.Having survived under a totalitarian regime, Cuban hip-hop duo Krudas Cubensi refuses to compromise. Lyrically, nothing is off limits as they spit fiery lines about politics and sexuality with a frankness and openness that is seldom seen. With a persistent Afro-Cuban rhythm, Odaymara Cuesta and Olivia Prendes use their art as a weapon "to fight against oppression, for justice, for... [see more] balance, for our rights, to celebrate the life." Now based out of Austin, Texas, Krudas Cubensi continues their fight for social justice through their incendiary, original hip-hop.
