apolitical individuals and the monk in the monastery; that they, too, will be better off as citizens of a democratic polity (p. 41).

These rappers typically perform at alternative cultural centres and human-rights festivals while continuing to work in their hometowns' low-paid and informal economies. Similar translations of hip-hop as a visual, sonic and embodied language of both marginality and glamour have happened around the world.
