In 2010, INTIKANA traveled to Cuba and attended their annual SIMPOSIO DE HIP HOP CUBANO which is an interdisciplinary series of events consisting of performances, workshops, film screenings, and other activities that take place over several days in August. While there, he met artists from all around the world and managed to record four songs before returning to the Bronx. One of these songs were entitled “AMISTAD” which, in spanish, means “Friendship.” Upon building a strong friendship with Miki Flow and Brebaje Man of Cuban Hip Hop group EXPLOSIÓN SUPREMA, INTIKANA visited Micro X of Alamar, Cuba where the island’s Hip Hop was born. Directed & edited by INTIKANA, the “Amistad” music video documents his life-changing trip, the people he met, and it speaks on maintaining a true friendship across borders, despite the political tensions that exist between Cuba and the United States. The song also features Cuban female emcees/singers Indiana and La Real.
