Today, I’m going to share with you some mixed tapes for break dancing from Nigerian artists. But before doing so, if you don’t know yet the general origins of b-boy music and dance themselves, just have a read of this article
In Nigeria, Hip-hop music and dance only began to gain popularity in the mid-1990s. The initial success of The Remedies was probably the catalyst. Formed in 1997, the group released two songs, “Judile” and “Shako mo”, which became overnight hits in Nigeria.
Enjoy this Youtube videos’playlistt from The Remedies!
I have also found especially for you some rare old Nigerian funk music :
Now show us your moves on one of these music tracks by copying your video link in the comment box! Can you be as good bowler as b-boy?
During the 2017 Saint Patrick’s weekend, we had the pleasure to be entertained by a 7 piece oldskool hip-hop cover band playing live in Dublin. The band joined the dots from The Sugar Hill to Dr Dre to Eminem.
For the old school hip-hop music nostalgic who couldn’t attend, you’ll be able to catch up with these oh so lovely oldskool tunes in videos!🎶✌
If you’d like to follow them, give them a like on Facebook! 👍
If you are in Ireland for 2018 St Patrick’s weekend, you are lucky! The band will be performing again this Saturday at The Sugar Club, Dublin! You can book your tickets here or on their website mentioned below.

I attended the ‘Home Sweet Home’ Benefit concerts on Friday 20th January 2017 at Sin é pub, Dublin 1 (Ireland) to raise funds for homeless people in Ireland.
Apart from contributing to a wonderful cause, I enjoyed discovering new bands and singer-songwriters!🤓
BENEFIT CONCERTS’ ORGANISATION
The event is organised for 2 nights: Friday 20th and Saturday 21st January 2017 and has a different line-up constituting 4 bands and/or singers-songwriters for each night. So, if you haven’t been to the first session, it’s still time to catch up the second one!✌😉
You will find the Eventbrite online ticket link directly in the event’s description or you may pay at the door!
While I was spending a holiday trip in Paris (France) in April 2016, I thought I might go to an expatriate networking party. I wanted to meet international people living in the city and have some fun with them!
I had found a black and white expatriate networking party in Paris advertised on the meetup.com website (Expats Paris) taking place at ‘rue du Colisée’ close to Champs-Elysées and Franklin D. Roosevelt metro station. I was curious to see what it’d be like.
There were around 60 people from different nationalities attending the event, meeting either to build communities or to improve their language skills.
I was greeted by meetup members and organisers. Then I was introduced to Michael, who I had asked few questions online before coming to the event. He was friendly and introduced me to few guests.
Then, we spent a bit of time chatting around on the ground floor before hitting the dancefloor. Music was an eclectic mix of Latin, Arabic, pop and hip-hop music.
I hope you will enjoy the below video and mixed tapes!

Thanks to the Dublin Event Guide, I heard about this amazing Irish ‘Early House’ cover band live concert taking place at the Whelan’s, Dublin 2 (Ireland) on Saturday 16th April 2016.
FUNK AND SOUL MUSIC COVERS
I didn’t regret attending it! Great musicians and singers. They played hits from famous singers such as James Brown, Amy Winehouse, Doobie Brothers, Etta James, Sly and Family Stone, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner and so much more.
Here are two pictures from the band:

After the success of my post on Hip Hop Foundation moves, I decided to write this one for break dancers wanting to learn foundation moves.
I have come across several videos from different users that are complementary and give a good understanding of how to do the very basic moves in break dance, including the dancing part called “Top Rock”.
Breakdance is not only about spinning on your head, so if you find this a little too hard, start with top rock and easy steps/moves.
Anyway, I hope you will find these videos helpful:
