Ami Yéréwolo the ufo

Combine the keywords “woman, rap and Mali” and you will inevitably come up the artist Ami Yéréwolo. Runner up of the RFI 2018 Prize, Ami is currently enjoying great success in Mali and in the regions of Senegal, Burkina Faso and Niger. She is a UFO in an exclusively male world where women are still only employed today as backing singers. She is living an astonishing trajectory, spontaneous and far from the clichés made in the USA. She even confesses that she’d hardly ever heard of rap before she was told one day as a teenager that this is what she was doing. She is the only Malian to have produced her own albums and solo tours. Her influences? No one artist in particular, her main influence is Malian society as a whole. Defining herself as an activist, (not simply a feminist), she is currently giving a new image to her native Mandinka empire. For her concert at the Moods club in Zurich, she will be singing alongside Senegalese DJ Nina (Charlotte NDiya).

victor marc

Multi-instrumentalist and autodidact, the Lyonnais Victor Marc, proposes a singular and surprising indie-pop music of Anglo-Saxon inspiration. Between old-school rock, folk and urban music, he plays solo, accompanied by a virtual orchestra concentrated in a looper. Thanks to nonchalant reverb effects, a vintage guitar sound, lyrics largely in English punctuated here and there by a...
