“Jogja Hip Hop Foundation thundered with bangin' beats and mad flow…You didn't need to understand the lyrics to feel their weight.” — Sacramento Press

They rap in Javanese with high level flow, recite verses from classical Javanese and Malay literature and poetry, and rhyme to wildly infectious rhythms and beats that have been borrowed from western and Indonesian music traditions. This dynamic collective, has at every turn, taken audiences by storm with their invigorating amalgamation of hip hop, gamelan and conscious rap, garnering critical acclaim from hip hop communities all over the world.
