1 - EKANY
Hailing from brussels belgium, ekany's road to music wasn't much of straight one. In fact he started getting much more of an interest in music at the age of 17, after living life moving from country to country and continent to continent.
As he describes it himself. "Growing up like this was an incredible opportunity to learn and embrace all sorts of different cultures ." and now this melting pot of diversity can be found and heard in his music.
A firm lover and representer of his african roots. Ekany was first introduced to african music by his father. Now he never skips the beat on showcasing where he comes from and those sweet rhythms he grew up on. While still bringing an uncanny energy and smoothness to the lot.
Another one of ekany's big influences was rap and hip hop music.
Growing up, understanding what was being said in an american song was a challenge. He therefore always enjoyed the instrumental aspect of a song more which played a big part in ekany's upbringing and love for music. From the old to the new, that hip hop boat never sails too far away from shore.
