Actitud María Marta is a female hip hop group created in 1995, in Buenos Aires. The band’s original sound is an energetic fusion of hip hop, reggae and Latin American music, boosted with tango and dancehall samples. Oscillating between sweet girlish melodies and powerful beats, Actitud María Marta’s songs are provocative and moving. From the group’s early days, their lyrics have been socially involved. They sing about the victims of the military dictatorship in Argentina, about the Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo and their “disappeared” children, and about people who are excluded from the post-capitalist reality.
