Emmanuel Jal
Emmanuel Jal is a South Sudanese musician and political activist who was smuggled into Kenya while he was still young to escape Second Sudanese Civil War. Jal eventually stumbled upon Hip-Hop and discovered the genre harbored incredible power, both spiritual and political. He went on to produce his first album, "Gua," a mix of rap in Arabic, English, Swahili, Dinka and Nuer. The title track, also called "Gua," was a number one hit in Kenya and featured on "The Rough Guide to the Music of Sudan and Help: A Day in the Life," bringing together some of Britain's best known on a CD in aid of children in conflict zones and was produced by War Child. His unique brand of Hip-Hop, layered with African beats, has led him to be considered one of the rising stars in the world music scene.
