Watch: Hip-hop meets sign language (via BBC)

Posted on March 10, 2017

A video (with subtitles) on the BBC News website shows how a Turkish rap band is looking to combine hip-hop with sign language.

In the video they explain how they saw the moves in rapping as being compatible with signing, and the video even features a Deaf member of the band.
