An association created in 1996, Saskwash is located at Etampes (Parisian area) and has the fundamental goal of distributing and promoting alternative cultures.

More exactly, the actions taken by Saskwash focus on different kinds of modern music such as hip-hop, techno, but also jazz and other more traditional kinds of music.

Because hip-hop music has become the music of reference among the “young generation”, Saskwash opened a break-dance class. The philosophy behind this acrobatic danse is “respect for others, taking pleasure in life, peace, love, unity and having fun!”

The Saskwash association has been supported by the Projet Banlieues programme of the BNP Paribas Foundation.
