The Lesotho Rap Archive Project is aimed at researching and documenting the development of Rap and Hip Hop, as well as traditional Accordion music over the past two decades, with a focus on capturing important events and moments that have not been widely shared.

The primary impact we hope to achieve with our archival project and workshops is to promote a greater appreciation and understanding of Lesotho Hip Hop and Accordion music within and beyond the region.

In addition to the archival aspect, the project will include a series of workshops targeted primarily at Basotho residents in Lesotho, aimed at providing education and networking opportunities for individuals involved in the music industry.

Additionally, a collaborative effort with organisations in the Southern African region will be sought out to create a pan-African network.
