In the past three years Fo Sho made a huge impact on the Ukrainian hip-hop scene. Since starting their hip-hop trio in 2019, members and sisters Betty, Miriam and Siona Endale performed at Ukraine’s largest music festival, Atlas Weekend, and music festivals abroad, reached the semi-finals of Ukraine’s Eurovision auditions, and have been buzzing both off- and online with their energetic, harmonious, and hard-hitting rap songs and performances. At ADE Beats, the three Ethiopian-Ukrainian hip-hop stars, together with their manager Inna Gissa, will share their story and perspective as ground breaking artists that have strongly been pushing the hip-hop scene forwards in Ukraine over the past years and building towards national stardom in Ukraine, establishing the beginnings of a global career. And they will discuss in-depth the huge impact the immense tragedy of the war has had on their life and work, and how the worldwide hip-hop scene and the music industry at large can and should support its members in these hardest of times.
