"Mother Earth"

Mantra

Mantra

» Artist Details
With Australian hip-hop burgeoning locally but still failing to make any deep impressions internationally, Mantra could very well be the ambassador the country needs to break the ice. Precision attack, clever wordplay, sharp lyrics, charisma and an overall style and delivery that is both universally appealing, and yet unobtrusively Australian - an elusive blend. On top of this, Mantra is a prolific writer and a brilliant and highly entertaining live performer.
