Abstract

This essay focuses on the music of the Black, all-female Cuban hip-hop group Las Krudas as a form of feminist activist art. Analyzing the group's lyrics and its members' self-conscious identification as feminists reveals insight into the role of music as a public forum that makes visible the social, sexual, and economic oppression of African-descended women in Cuban society.
