Ebow

The world is standing still, broken into two pieces. Canêis the name of the fourth studio by the female rapper Ebow, which is a Kurdish word that means “darling” or also “soul”. With her new album, Ebow is not only going back to the roots, representing München-Giesing and Free Kurdistan, she is also thoroughly exploring the contradictory desires that our era holds. Fast cars and political struggle. Shy flirts and the eternal search for trouble. Prada bags and protests. Ebow does not have to assume an alter ego to hide ambivalences, she withstands them. The rapper does not have to pretend to be someone she isn’t. Ebow is both: Resistant and hyped. Street and softie. Highly poetic and someone who doesn’t give a fuck.
