Neo-soul artist MiDi KwaKwa grew up in two contrasting cultures: with her Ghanaian parents in a small West German town. In her formative years, she was exposed to soul music, which sparked a lifelong love. Legends like Nina Simone and India Arie furthered her understanding of music as a tool for healing the soul. In 2017, the artist began using music as a form of self-expression, creating songs that reflect all aspects of her life. MiDi KwaKwa shares her deepest thoughts and feelings – with topics ranging from romance to mental health – in an effort to help listeners reflect on their own thoughts and feelings.
MiDi KwaKwa receives a grant of 4,000 euros in 2022 to realise an LP as well as a series of associated promotional and marketing activities, including the production of three music videos.
