Brooklyn based hip-hop collective The Lo Frequency (Chen Lo & The Liberation Family) have circled the globe visiting places like Senegal, South Africa, Swaziland, Lebanon, Algeria, Tunisia, and Morocco in promotion of hip-hop culture. At their destinations the crew organize community workshops, live performances, and collaborate with local musicians on tunes and videos.
Recently, The Lo Frequency crew traveled to La Ceiba, Honduras for the first annual World Summit of African Descendants, a "commemoration of the International Year for People of African Descent proclaimed by the United Nations [in which] delegates from all over the world gathered to discuss the socioeconomic conditions of Afro-descendant populations and establish a plan to ensure development with equity" for the group.
