Instrumentally, Cuban hop-hip is very different than its American cousin. It incorporates instruments like batas (tall drums), congas, live drums and guitar bass. Pablo Herrera, one of Cuba's top hip-hop producers describes it as "Buena Vista Social Club type of music, hip-hop and a little bit of rock. But even with government support and hundreds of groups, Cuban hip-hop has yet to penetrate the international music scene. They left Cuba for France in the late '90s. Bajo Mundo (Under World) often rap about political and controversial subjects. Herrera is currently producing the second compilation.
