Ebola Ape is an audiovisual project founded in 2011 by a mysterious, masked musician Ebo who claims to be a gorilla escaped from the scientist’s lab after his capture in the Congolese jungle. Ebola Ape’s first EP ‘Jungle Omen’ was self-released. Grimy and dark electronic sounds mixed with African / hip hop rhythms instantly received much interest from around the world. Positive press reviews and invitiations to play solo gigs and festivals followed. Soon after Ebo was joined by Agata ‘Hertzshmertz’ Krolak , who added element of ethnic magic to his live performances with her visuals. For the stage she transforms herself into a pink fox to keep up with the fairy-tale animalistic character of the project. 2012 saw the release of the second EP ‘Humanity’ by a Slovakian netlabel Soun Records. The work on the first LP has been completed, it will be titled ‘Dance in Haze’. A lot of heart has been put into this production, with a few talented and up-coming young artists from countries as diverse as Poland, Sweden or USA. See what they are up to here.
