Danitsa

  • Switzerland
  • France
  • Libertarian hip-hop

Danitsa has the wind in her sails. Gifted with incisive groove, the rising star of Swiss-French rap has proved with her first album Ego a determination to open up to new, broader horizons. The queen of Swiss new wave hip-hop pays homage to her Jamaican roots by assuming her choice of rapping in the language of Shakespeare, tinged with subtle influences of soul and reggae, to which she adds marked intonations of ragga dancehall. Vocal technicity and a good dose of self-confidence have allowed Danitsa to emancipate herself from the usual codes and distance herself from the dictates of musical categorisation.
