Bio

EPHNIKO (ef-ni-ko) is a Bi-lingual hip hop recording artist, songwriter, and emcee residing in Miami. His brand of lyricism sketches poetic portraiture onto musical canvasses that are rooted in the concrete mechanics of 90s hip hop while managing to remain unpredictably eclectic. His sound has been deemed similar to Orishas, Calle 13, Mos Def, KRS-One, and Vico C among others. Also his genre transcending writing has been compared with the likes of Ruben Blades, Nas, Jim Morrison, Silvio Rodriguez and Guru.

His inspiration for such remarkable lyrics arises as much from the details of his life journey as it does from his desire to help in the efforts against weapons of mental colonization. “My artistic struggle is as much a need to progress and escape poverty as it is a means of resistance to economic injustice, racism, ignorance, and brutality. Music is a vehicle to provoke critical thought, instigate independent education, and inspire spiritual cultivation.” It sounds serious, but Ephniko’s balance of musicality, flavor, humor, and story telling is sure to keep you entertained.

Ephniko connects to his audience with sharp delivery, charismatic stage presence, jazzman like improvisation skills, and a unique musical journey that sets him apart from his counterparts. His crowd rocking ability has put his name in the bill alongside Vico C, Immortal Technique, Cultura Profetica, Mad Professor, KRS-One, Macaco, Bobbito, Dead Prez, Black Eyed Peas, Puff Daddy, Easy All Stars, King Chango, Morgan Heritage, Grupo Niche, and more. As an international touring musician Ephniko has performed in multiple festivals and concerts in New York City, Bogota, Barranquilla, Miami, San Francisco, Costa Rica, Guatemala, New Orleans, Puerto Rico, Caracas, Manila, Johannesburg, Capetown, Thailand, La Paz, Lima, Ecuador, and many more.
