AMET is the artist’s name of Anaba M’bala Elsa Tatiana. She was born in 1988 in Yaoundé, Cameroon. In 1999, she moved to Berlin, where she grew up. As a skilled social worker she carried out different projects with adolescents in Germany, Canada and Jamaica. Since 2009 she is a member of the band Rising Thought and since 2001 she works as a freelance educator. She lives in Germany and Cameroon, where she develops a cultural and pedagogical program. The complex experience of living as a black woman between two worlds is a central theme of her artistic activity as author, performer, and musician. In her texts and songs, M’bala takes a poetic and critical approach to investigating her life worlds, the conflicts that arise from these worlds and her desire for change.
