Dooz Kawa

Discovering hip-hop and the music of Eastern Europe as a child, in the cellars of the German garrisons where his father was a soldier, rap artist Dooz Kawa is one of a kind. Proud heir of the golden age of 1990s French rap, he defends the literary DNA of his lyrics. He has lectured at the École Normale Supérieure and at Sciences Po Paris, where his texts have been studied like those of the greatest poets, proving that rap’s reputation is firmly established.

In 2012 he released the album Message aux anges noirs, followed in March 2013 by a free digital compilation of freestyles and B sides under the name of Archives. Dooz Kawa has also issued a series of four EPs titled Narcozik, of which the first two appeared in 2013 and 2014. In May 2016 he confirmed his unique artistic stature with the album Bohemian Rap Story.
