Sara Hebe is one of the most talented cumbia rappers in Latin America. Her lyrics are urban poems on fighting, feminism, inequality, and the critique of the prevailing conditions. With her raw and energetic poetry, she tears down the musical borders between cumbia, hip-hop, dancehall, reggae, and punk rock, and pieces them together again in a new way. This results in an unmistakable sound rich in variety that she performs onstage with the multi-instrumentalist Ramiro Jota and the drummer Edu Moroto to rock the house.

AWA Khiwe, the rap queen of Zimbabwe, is Africa's new female hip-hop voice. She combines rap in English with the click sounds of Zimbabwean national language Ndebele, creating her own powerful, danceable hip-hop style. Coming from Makoboka, the oldest township in Zimbabwe, she explores in her texts the violence inflicted by violence, especially against women, high rates of HIV and teenage pregnancies. At the same time, with the danceable rhythms of her songs, she wants to make it clear that, despite all the problems, life is worth living. She fights for equal rights and AWA is not only her name but also an acronym for African Woman Arise.
