Eden Dersso Is the Changing Face of Tel Aviv’s Hip-Hop Scene
Ethiopian-Israeli rapper, Eden Dersso is making waves in Tel Aviv’s growing hip-hop music scene and #Vogue took note.
Profiling the 21-year-old rising artist, the #VogueWorld piece called Dersso's music "captivating and provocative", highlighting her life as a black woman in Israel- "Ethiopian culture is fundamental to Dersso’s music"- and her status as one of the country's few female rappers as the defining pillars of her work.
Dersso's goals in her own words: “I want to touch every girl like me, so I want to be an actor, a fashion model, I want to write, make music videos. I want to be everywhere for everyone to see, acknowledge, and respect what I do, because I would have loved to see a black woman spinning in this country when I was a child. I want Israel to eventually be sick of my face."
