Efa Supertramp is a Welsh folk-punk grrrl who comes armed with an acoustic guitar and a powerful voice. She regularly tours across Europe – appearing at festivals, bars, squats, venues, living rooms and street corners to perform her songs. Originally from North Wales and now based in London, Efa sings in both English and Welsh and has been shouting about the world’s wrongs in one form or another since she started her bilingual punk band The Stilletoes at the age of 15. You may also hear some Welsh folk songs.Whether it’s the DIY attitude of the punk scene, the powerful female voices of Riot Grrrl, the socialist beliefs of many of her fellow Welsh-speakers or the anarchistic spirit of folk music’s nomads – it can all be found in Efa’s music and activities. Efa’s songs are angry but uplifting; railing against money, power and greed whilst having a zest for life and freedom. Her anger at an unjust world is combined with constructive solutions and hope for a better future. Efa deftly combines elements of her influences to pay tribute to those who fought for equality in previous generations – showing that protest music is far from dead.
