ETERNALLY. PRODUCING. HISTORY. NEVER. IGNORING. KNOWLEDGE.
EPHNIKO is a bilingual performer, songwriter, recording artist, full-time emcee, part-time producer, and third world HipHop researcher.
Lyrically, EPHNIKO engages his audience with sharp delivery, charismatic stage presence, and a unique musical journey that sets the soundtrack for intricately woven immigrant narratives and metaphoric tales of the times. His brand of HipHop is rooted in the underground where creativity and originality are valued above sales and publicity. His sound has been compared to Orishas, Beatnuts, Blackstarr, Vico C, and Nas.
EPHNIKO has shared the stage with Bobbito Garcia and Dead Prez in Venezuela, Vico C in Peru, and Immortal Technique in Miami. He hosted the final of the Redbull Batalla De Gallos in Bogotá, Colombia and was a guest performer at the Battle Of The Year in Capetown, South Africa. EPHNIKO performed at the Carnaval Latino in New Orleans, and created MCinema: an audio-visual concert commissioned by the Miami Dade Public Library. In 2008 he joined Guanaco MC and the Pesos Pesados Crew for a successful 8-city tour of Ecuador to promote his solo album release: ESCRIBO LO QUE VIVO. The album is currently circulating throughout Latin America, Europe, and the U.S. and is also available digitally on I-Tunes.
Not only an artist, EPHNIKO is an ethnographer who scored, narrated, and co-produced the multimedia feature, Latin American HipHop, which was published in the Miami Herald online. He is available for lectures, screenings, discussions, and performances. To view his Curriculum Vitae, click here.
