Indigenous Rappers Are Using Hip-Hop to Preserve Their Language

Hijos Indigenas Linaje Originarios (Nana Vasquez)

They say music is the universal language of mankind, but Brayan and Dario Tascón are hoping music will help preserve their own language.

The duo’s hip-hop group is the Linaje Originarios. What sets Brayan and Dario, both from Valparaíso, Colombia, apart as artists is that they rap in Emberá, an endangered language, in the hopes of passing it on to younger generations of the embera people, which reside in the northwestern region of Colombia. Embera communities can also be found in Panama.

“We sing in our language to teach the children [in our community,]” Dario says in the video. “So the children don’t forget our culture, our language.”

But their music isn’t just enjoyed by their community. The rappers perform in big cities and even make music videos that can be found on YouTube. Check out one of them above, for their song “Hijos indigenas” (”Indigenous Sons”)
