Biography

Hailing from Mexico city, Bocafloja strives in search of alternative forms of classic hip hop structure in the form of MC. Bocafloja uses Hip Hop as an educational model and free style poetry as a resource. Lyrics that critically judge social, political, everyday life and even the artist’s own contradictions, without dogmatizing yet with strict firmness. Without limiting art to four elements or pigeonholing the struggle in a pamphlet. Art in resistance. With an international vision from the most populated city in the world Bocafloja maintains a comprehensive position that would never forget that which differentiates us. With four solo albums, the production of two compilations albums, and presence on stages that extend from Rikers Island Penitentiary Center in New York, Barrio 23 de Enero in Venezuela, to the Cultural Center Bank of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro—without omitting the innumerable appearances throughout México, during 10 years of constant activity in the Hip Hop scene—Bocafloja was presented with the DJ & Clubbing Awards’ Hip Hop Artist of the Year Award 2006 in Mexico. Bocafloja has shared the stage with such artists as Dead Prez, Afu-Ra, J-live, Freestyle Fellowship, Immortal Technique, K`naan, Rascalz, Intifada, Actitud Maria Marta, and SieteNueve, among others. Founder of QUILOMBOARTE, an organization that seeks to produce cultural events in which HIP HOP functions as an educational tool and an essential collaborative adhesive to social and political leftist movements in the processes of transformation throughout Mexico and Latin America.
