Mary Ocher was born in Moscow in 1986, grew up in Tel Aviv and currently divides her time between Berlin and Hamburg. Her musical work ranges from traditional folk to raw '60s garage, ambient with ethereal vocals and abstract synths, to experimental pop with African and South American rhythms. She has released four studio albums on five labels as well as an anthology of home recordings, two EPs and two collections of remixes. Most recently, The West Against The People is out on Klangbad.
