In Paris 2010 the Swedish street-dancers Martha & Niki a.k.a Martha Nabwire and Niki Tsappos- were awarded Champions of Hip Hop for their kick-ass performance held at the annual Juste Debout dance-competion. Which made them the first females in history to win the prestigious and acclaimed award. Just to illustrate my admiration: the’re the sugar in my tea, owning it like it’s always been theirs.
Today their resumé looks pretty sharp, travelling- or rather dancing, all over the world spreading their love for dance while squeezing international hip hop battles e.g.; Street Star Hip Hop Sweden (2010) SDK Czech Republic Crew battle (2010) WDC Hip Hop Japan (2010) and the list goes on.
Also, get a re-cap and re-experience the battle below, where the duo won the battle back in 2010. As always just as remarkable and a definite must see. It’s just so liberating to watch, they just connect and are so synced and intertwined and move to a beat of their own drum.
And finally we’d – once again – like to remind you to view director Tora Mårten’s trailer for the upcoming documentary ”Dear Dance..” – We’re so stoked on seeing the complete version planned for release in 2012 (work in progress).
