Berlin community space and ongoing party series hoe_mies take over one of the floors at YAAM with their crew of female, non-binary, and trans artists that fight for better representation in the hip hop scene. Combining 90s and 00s hip hop, R&B, trap, baile funk, dancehall, reggaeton and more, hoe_mies also welcome Hengameh Yaghoobifarah aka kos_mic q’andi, who fuses diasporic yearnings with the nostalgia of MTV youth and current queer sounds.
