Since 2007 under the label RAPFLEKTION rap-workshops are organized by the music project LÖWENHERTZ which is part of the youth department of the city of Braunschweig in Germany. At the end of a 10 month period of workshops the young rappers produce their own CD and present their songs live to an audience.

2010 the song RAPNATION was published on this release for the first time.

RAPNATION is not just a song. it's a symbol for a home, extended to youth all over the world to find a place in rap music. Every input is kind of an acoustic text message with an individual content. With a range from a self-manifestation to political statements.

Common language is the "flow" (the consonance of voice, beat, melody, accentuation, lyrics, and pronounciation of the rapper). This CD is a concrete example of multicultural life. The focused work together demands respect, curiosity and the ability to listen to each other. In order to find out how rap sounds in different languages. RAPNATION is a snapshot of a process with an open end. Klaus Gelhaar, master chief of project LÖWENHERTZ, recorded a verse with young rappers in Brasil in febuary 2011. The purpose is to send this song all around the world. This musical arrangement, suitable for dancing, will expand every year. In Braunschweig more international partners will be added and published with the RAPFLEKTION CD.

We wish to obtain a colaboration with our international twin-towns.

La musica, la gente, que es muy alegre, la rumba no se muere, tu culo se mueve, en mi mundo te pierdes, derepente Medellin, Cartagena Bogotá, cada ciudad tiene otra vidá esto es America Latina, esto es America Latina!!

DR.BAD (Mohamed) | Arabian (Tunesian)

"This lyrics can not be written down in arabian letters. Tunisian is an arabian dialect but the writing is coming exclusively from the high arabian language. Certainly every tunesian can understand the lyrics."

Tunesia fellow countrymann, the night disappears when the moon arises. Listen to my rap and understand. Listen and reflect before you judge me. You have to understand what it means: every country has it's rites. This country gathers and unites the different cultures. Germany, who ever thought of a youth singing about the culture of different lands.

ALBO (Muhamet) | Albanian

Pe baj kët rep/ për Kosovën... senet që i kam ba / ato nuk harrohen... Dashni për Shqipërin, dashni pë Krajkovë.../ nuk ësht vendi im / ato prap mendohen... Drenasi Drenica, vendi që u linda, në zemer ju mbaj dej t'më vjen dita. N'Kosov du me ka, familjen me pa, hajgare me ba dhe me qesh hala. E kam ni shok, Prishtinali, ësht hajgaregji askush sja ka zili jo...

I write this rap for the Kosovo. The things I came to know, I will never forget. Love for Albania, love for Krajkovë, not my place of birth but I think of them. Drenasi and Drenica, I carry you in my heart 'til the last day that I'll die. Soon I will come to Kosovo to meet my relatives, to embrace each other and to hang out together. Also here I'm not alone. I have a good friend he is a Prishtinali. He is always in a good mood, everybody likes him.

LEHLO (Leandro) | Portugiesisch (Brasil)

Da licença, tô chegando. Esse é meu Brasil guerreiro de mulata, futebol, carnaval o ano inteiro. Grito ao mundo inteiro se quiser pode chega, na paz.  Hospitalidade de mineiro que fala uai.  Rapnation é isso ai. Disciplina e verdade não importa de onde vem sempre ha oportunidade.

Excuse me, I am coming. This is my fierce brasil with mulattos, soccer, carnival the whole year. I cry it out into the whole world: you can come if you want, in peace!
Hospitality of the Mineiros (from the state of Minas Gerais) who talk Uai (local idiom) Rapnation is, what it is: (self) discipline and truth. It is not important where it comes from but there is always an opportunity.
