Ekat Bork, eclectic Swiss artist of Siberian origins, breaks boundaries in every aspect of her life. An alternative electronic artist, she uses a combination of unique sounds and visuals to rupture societal norms.

The diversity in her music is intriguing. Ekat Bork is creating her very own introspective electronic music.

Ekat expresses herself by writing music, lyrics, arrangements and by directing and editing her music videos. Tigers and snow leopards scavenge the bins of the suburbs. Ekat Bork was born here with China to her west and the Sea of Japan to the east and Moscow 6000 miles away.

Like the big cats of her city she scavenged and survived and planned her escape. Her city had a circus. Ekat learned the trapeze and gymnastics. She sang traditional songs of the Russian far east. She danced and wailed, wild and unrestrained. She studied at the university.

She watched heavy metal bands but didn’t understand them. She packed all she had, stole the money from her mother’s purse and caught the Trans-Siberian Express to St Petersburg. It took nine days. But her journey to freedom would take much longer.

She busked on the subway, she crashed in filthy squats with no-name bands. She worked and was fired for singing instead of selling. She escaped again… to Switzerland.

She studied at CPM in Milan “singing and contemporary writing and production” and made contacts within the musical world of Switzerland and Italy. In October/ December 2013 she performed with Eric Martin and Jannifer Batten in acoustic and electric shows on a long tour.

Ekat Bork recorded two challenging, uncompromising albums, “VERAMELLIOUS” (2014) and “YASДYES” (2016) highly appreciated by the public and by the international critics. Ekat performed over 100 concerts in Europe and she reached the most important stages in Switzerland, like the Gurten Festival, M4music, Label Suisse, the Swiss national television.

In late 2017 at Greenhouse Studios in Reykjavik “KONTROL”, an EP of vast electronic atmospheres emerged. Mastered by composer Valgeir Sigurðsson.

“KONTROL” is an EP of vast electronic atmospheres, heart-pumping rhythms and dark emotional depth. Two tracks Kontrol and Zhivago will be singles, wrapped in provocative videos.

Between May and August 2018, Ekat Bork found herself free, naked and fearless as she embarks on her first Solo EU & INDIA Tour. In May 2019 Ekat was nominated, in the electronic music category, as a SWISS LIVE TALENT for awards.

Ekat Bork’s new video-single “SHAMANIA” , released on October 18th , is a poem on our obsession with the virtual world, the product of corporate imaginations in place of our own. It’s a staccato strafing of the on-line universe, a subscription lifestyle of vapid alternatives to real life. It’s a plea to the world to step away from your smartphone, your tablet, your X-box, to leave your popcorn life in the Grand Illyuzion.

The eclectic Swiss- siberian artist is ready to surprise us again with a NEW ALBUM ready in the drawer entitled “EKAT.” and she assures us that the best is about to arrive, preceded by two singles: “A Kind of Kids ”and” One More Hero”.
