T-shirt design by graf artist Ice for the Indaba of 2000

The annual African Hip Hop Indaba is growing bigger and bigger. Last year was a success when many people turned up during the main events. But the organization never looses sight of the townships, and all activities are set up so that those who have a tight budget, or transport problems can also be there.
