9:30 p.m. Fo Sho – Black Jewish Ukrainian Hip Hop
Fo Sho is the hip-hop project of the three sisters Miriam, Siona and Betty Endale, who not only stand for brilliant rap, but also for a piece of Eastern European contemporary: Ukrainian, Jewish, black. As children of Jewish migrants from Ethiopia, the sisters grew up in Kharkiv in eastern Ukraine and attended an ultra-Orthodox school there. Precisely because secular music was banned at home, they later found their own approach to genres such as R'n'B and trap and founded Fo Sho in 2019. After the Russian invasion in 2022, the trio had to flee Ukraine and since then, like few other musicians from the region, they have stood for rebellion and awakening through music.
