Voyage To Gandahar: The Hip Hop Network

"Where Literature Meets Hip Hop Culture"

Voyage To Gandahar: The Hip Hop Network will premiere every third Wednesday of each month, from 9 to 10 pm, starting in December. That's right. Tune into Freiburg's own American Hip Hop Teacha “Sir Reggie” as he reads excerpts from both works of fiction and non-fiction in English—and explains how these stories chart a course for Hip Hop's journey through the modern world. If you've ever wondered what literature sounds like with Hip Hop as a backdrop, you might find Sir Reggie's experimental theater of reading, and playing rap music, interesting. We're looking forward to the show!
