__________________________________________________________
FRESH, PASSIONATE, FEROCIOUS AND COLORFUL

This Brooklyn, Berlin, London based MC is the exception that could change the rules.

Neither a sex kitten wannabe nor a puppet for a behind the scenes machine,
Yarah Bravo displays defiant intelligence, acute political awareness and a
world-traveler’s sense of cosmic consciousness while exuding the streetwise cool
of the neighbourhood girl we all secretly wanna kick it with...

This fly lady never sleeps, she books her own shows, runs her own label, designs her
own clothes, makes her own videos, records her own vocals, makes her own flyers, put
on her own festival, promotes herself through her myspace, and promotes all her friends
too, even cuts her own hair... all while touring the world and partying with the locals almost
every night of her life.

Sometimes she looks like 14, but she carries the knowledge of someone 4 times
her age.

"the the best education you can have in life...is living it to the fullest, mistakes
and all"

And when she takes to the stage, that is exactly what you feel. Performing with
a sense of heartfelt urgency, conviction, and youthful energy, she captivates even the
most listless crowd. With more than 4 languages under her belt and as a child of two
freedom fighters, she is a true renaissance woman with a purpose. While others are
content with polluting the airwaves, Yarah Bravo would rather challenge you with breath
of fresh air.

She is the founding member of London's supergroup One Self (Ninja Tune Records)
and the front woman of Dj Vadim's Soundcatcher Soundsystem, blessed with an aphrodisiac
voice that was born to be broadcast.
With endless collaborations under her belt, she is never afraid to push her own boundaries,
saying that every collaborator brings out a different side to her, and she never really knows
what to expect.

End of 2008 Yarah released her first Mixtape - Good Girls Rarely Make History,
an introduction to her debut album now to be released on BBE later this year.
"i did the mixtape because i got sick of people always asking me where they could buy
my non existent album"
It sold out within 2 weeks on her myspace!!

As this little B-girl is breaking out on her own...her fan base grows, and it is growing fast.
It seems like this charismatic and openly honest MC might just be the one to change the
game.
Let us introduce:

Lyrics

The Bluebird

Written By: Yarah Bravo

THE BLUEBIRD

When i walked up all you caught was the shade of my hat on my face
my ways are in pain, from the strain of my ways
chains engraved in my physical days, in physical waves i get physical 
strength from my individual ways
meanwhile I'm not fulfilled, this feeling shall not be stilled
rewind time and rewrite lines for the kinds of you to feel
docile if you so will, fragile and you go downhill
drinking wine, forgetting time, now time to be refilled
they say if you snooze you loose
well i spend my days, dazed and confused
is it cause i blaze all day and fade, then that's old news
if it's new to you, this is Yarah rapping the blues
don't get used to it, running mascara i refuse
closed doors prevent outsiders from viewing
but struggling alone makes it tough for pursuing
dreams, but it seems all i get are sleepless nights
nightmares about losing loved ones and losing fights

The bluebird flew over the fields of sorrow
as i left the scene and the dream watching the souls wallow
left you for more, left the room hollow
many will fall, a lot more will fallow

you take drugs to psyche your mind
You take wine, to forget about time
you create a world of your own
where the truth, will never be known

I work when the work seems like play
and hate to play when the work seems to work my way, i say
i work my way through everyday that i play my way
now.. hear what i say, hear what i say
makes it all seem hopeless like impending cancellations
the locks will open someday continued determination
restless infection destroys spiritual vaccinations
and i will head for my destination
i stand alone at the crossroads of death inhale the breath
of lost souls that left in and out of counciousness
drinking wine reminds me of what honest is
making me wonder where the hell the logic is?
we're all lost, we're all tossed, at a lost cause
fight between ourselves, relieve ourselves, and then we all fall
through the wall, through it all, who we are?
no denying that at 5 foot i still stand tall

The bluebird flew over the fields of sorrow
as i left the scene and the dream watching the souls wallow
left you for more, left the room hollow
many will fall, a lot more will fallow

you take drugs to psyche your mind
You take wine, to forget about time
you create a world of your own
where the truth, will never be known

Many will fall
A lot more will follow
Follow
