EBRA is the alter-ego chosen by Khaoula Bouchkhi, a North African artist, mainly known for her ability to speak using transculturality and as a fierce and moving performer (she is also a dancer and actress, see www.khaoula-bouchkhi.com) with a petit je ne sais quoi to build bridges between souls as easily as breathing.


Born in Rabat (Morocco), EBRA, which means "needle" in the Moroccan Darija language, which as a child dreamed of becoming a Pan-African ambassador, discovered in her sweet childhood the voice of some of the most prominent divas such as Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone, Mahalia Jackson, Fontella Bass, Anita Baker, Billie Holiday, Angelique Kidjo, Miriam Makeba, and then discover their own voice while listening at first to some oriental classical divas like Oum Kelthoum, Warda and then to RNB star Lauryn Hill . .
Currently calling Barcelona home, her work as a singer-songwriter is produced by Jules Isaac Bikôkô Bi Njami, a producer, composer and live musician of Cameroonian origin.
