Flying Machine aka B-boy Arif: #HipHopHomeland – 101 India

Jogeshwari based b-boy Arif Chaudri is better known as Flying Machine, winner of India’s Red Bull BC One. Starting from humble roots, with no formal training, classes or mentors, Arif learnt all his dance moves from watching professional dancers. Arif has been b-boying since 2009. His major influences are Kendrick Lamar and Joey Badass who can help reveal what they’re thinking, through their physical manifestation of dance. He loves breaking to music by some of the local talent in India – Kinga Rhymes and Mawali. He got into Bboying because it represents freedom to him. It gives him wings to fly. His technique is very technical which is why he calls him self the machine – The Flying Machine. He has won more than 13 awards for his bboying.

Hip Hop Homeland is the most in-depth look yet at the burgeoning Indian underground hip hop scene. A series of raw, gritty profiles about a fast emerging youth trend, Hip Hop Homeland covers the growth of hip hop movement in Mumbai, spanning the entire scope of hip hop subculture – from rap to other forms of self-expression like dance and visual art. This new trend is coming through the slums and the chawls, and the rappers covered in the series speak in a street ‘bhasha’ that draws on local languages.
