Baz Luhrmann’s The Get Down chronicles the rise of hip hop even as disco is beginning to fade. It’s also about a group of dreamers who see themselves as something more than others see them.

Netflix has just released a ‘meet the cast’ video in which cast members talk about their characters and how they all work together to create something fresh and new.

Check it out after the break. The Get Down season one is streaming on Netflix as we speak.
