Burmese Rapper (2019)

Burmese Rapper

Synopsis

Long-haired and skinny Mandalay rapper ‘Wareru’ expounds his approach to life and his music in this offbeat portrait of one of Myanmar’s most popular hip hop artists. You don’t have to be Shan to wear Shan trousers, claims this wordsmith, but you might have to go back to your Burmese history books to get all the references in his lyrics.
