Nancy Black is the artist alter ego of Gilda Horvath – produced her first song in Dec 2016 after being threatened and bashed by people who had spread fake news about Roma in the media: They claimed that all Roma in Austria would give their support to the far-right candidate at the Presidential Elections in Austria on Dec 4 2016.Horvath protested against this kind of manipulation and became target of hate speech and defamation after that. Her rasping Trushula was a clear answer. This was the day Nancy Black was born.
Nancy Black is also producing video mixes, video installations and digital/visual art and writing texts and poetry with a strong connection to the language Romanes and the situation of Romani people.
Especially the tracks #trushula #dosta #presidenturja and lobbying are dedicated to the activistic cause. her first Album is online now: https://lnk.site/love-revolution
