Granada Doaba is a flamenco hip-hop collaboration album recorded in Spain, produced by Gnawledge and funded by a Fulbright grant. Gnawledge is a praxis hip-hop collaboration between Fulbright scholar Canyon Cody and rapper/producer Gnotes. Composers of modern electronic riddims rooted in traditional music, Gnawledge promotes participatory education through sample-based hip-hop. Granada Doaba features 16 musicians from around the world who are all currently living in the Andalusian city of Granada, Spain. Rooted in flamenco and Arab music, Granada Doaba explores Andalusia's diverse history of musical fusion, with influences coming from India, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and the USA.
