Tribal Rebel Ludi is an mc, photographer and co-founder of Subterranean Wavelength from Johannesburg, South Africa. She cut her teeth in the inner city cipher scene of the mid 2000’s and rapidly gained notoriety for her buoyant introspective freestyles.
Her Influences can be rooted in the iambically precise cerebral rap created by the likes of Qwel and Aesop Rock. Apart from a few miscellaneous features as a hip hop dilettante her recording career truly began with a hitherto unreleased project as one half of Okham’s Razor Blade- a rap duo featuring Vulkan Cydeburner.
Her style is characterized by her long-form stream of consciousness approach to writing. She invites listeners on a turbulent voyage through holographic imagery and immaculate turns of phrase which burn into the memory.
Her debut solo project ‘Keys to The Village’ was released in April 2016 to critical acclaim and has been reviewed and featured on a number of local and international blogs and online radio stations. In November 2017 she curated her first project which was an All female compilation “Tides” featuring some of the most talented local producers, mc’s and vocalists She intends to release this annually.
