The Universal Zulu Nation UK are proud to present the indisputable Godfather of Hip Hop, Afrika Bambaataa, on tour and in conversation to celebrate 40 years of Hip Hop culture this November for Hip Hop History Month.

This series of events will showcase Afrika Bambaataa’s considerable live showmanship in a series of live gigs, as well as his unique take on the history of Hip Hop in a number of talks at some of the UK’s most prestigious institutions, including the British Library, British Film Institute and the Leeds City Museum. The live tour will be partially in conjunction with the legendary Grandmaster Flash and celebrated rapper Yasiin Bey, formerly known as Mos Def. The tour is in partnership with Academy Events
