Jo Baka: Rasta on The Rise
Lyndon Cloete was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. He is one of the Breakdance Pioneers who is putting his energy into making Conscious Reggae Music. His music focuses on the social ills the youth are faced with. He is a community activist and together with his crew run an organisation called “Hood Hop Africa” where they use dance and music to target the idle youths who would otherwise be lured to join gangs. Their successful event: Rocking the Hood, is staged at different areas in the Cape Flats (notorious for gang related violence), they recruit the youth and stage Breakdancing competitions.
