The Event

Join us the afternoon of Saturday, February 8th for some French Hip Hop + French snacks + fun activities to take us inside the music and lyrics of Hippocampe Fou.

WARNING: You don’t need to speak French for this!  Let the record show that I first fell for his music before I could fully decipher his lyrics, and I’ll bet you a Euro you will, too.  Scroll down and see for yourself.  Also, the activities will be in English (et français, aussi).

3pm – Activities, games and giveaways for all ages that involve his music and lyrics as well as bit of French culture.

4pm – Apéro, goûter & Hippocampe Fou live, with special guests!

 

Hippocampe Fou

Hippocampe Fou is a French rapper who is highly recognized for his fluid, ultra-fast flow which oscillates between spoken word and rap, as well as his ability to rap over any type of rhythm and bpm. With his Trilogy of three albums built around the water cycle, a musical in the works (“L’Odyssée d’Hippo”), numerous collaborations, and hundreds of gigs under his belt, he is a tireless artist.

After living between NY and Paris for almost 3 years, he is moving back to France soon and looks forward to taking us on a musical journey apéro-style before he leaves. Please join us as he performs new and old tunes, invites a few special guests to join him, and offers us some fun ways to interact with his music before the show.

WARNING!
You don’t need to speak French to fall in love with his flow, varied rhythms and super fun videos! See for yourself via a few videos and playlists on the Sounds tab, or head right to his YouTube channel.

Fun fact: yours truly did the English subtitles which you see in the video for Underground, careful to translate poetically, not just Google Translate.

 

Tastes

Our anniversary apéro, in California. Summer 2019*

Apéro: the lovely french tradition of a wine/light cocktail and small bites in the late afternoon / early evening.

At Cultures Capsules, we like our events to dazzle all the senses at once, so in addition to the music of HIPPO, we will bring in the tastes of an apéro to this performance, enhancing the experience, and virtually transporting us to Paris with him.

In fact HIPPO references apéro in his song “Le Mal du Pays,” which means “Homesick.”

The above photo is from an anniversary trip to California over the summer of 2019.  We were staying in a sweet little cottage in Guerneville, overlooking this vineyard.  As you can see it was a perfect spot for an apéro.  We had visited Cobb wines earlier that day, and he sent us home with two amazingly delicious bottles. Highly recommend!
