Oko Ebombo is a Paris-based multidisciplinary artist, who got his introduction to the arts through dance. From dancing, he got involved in theatrical performances, then photographies and videos, and finally music in 2009. Ebombo’s musical project mixes elements of poetry and movement, and is inspired by his own life and urban experiences. His lyrics touch on a childhood spent learning on the streets of Paris, rather than in the education system, while others channel experiences of touring the world as a dancer for global megastars.
Oko describes himself as “a writer, dancer and musician with messages to deliver; the pursuit for cross-cultural unity, the pursuit of positivity in life, and the transformative role of art.”
Oko Ebombo is one of the participating artists of the group project A Funeral for Street Culture (2021), curated by Rita Ouédraogo and Metro54 at Framer Framed, Amsterdam.
