Salvadoran rap or Guanaco hip hop is a type of rap music that comes from El Salvador. It is a style of music that emerged from groups such as Pescozada and Mecate in the late 1990s. Salvadoran hip hop arose about 30 years ago following a large migration of Salvadorans to LA. Their arrival occurred during a surge in popularity of hip hop in the United States, which allowed them to participate. Salvadoran hip hop is still a smaller kind of music but it is an important part to communities and the lives of many Salvadorans. [citation needed][1]
