Although the actual context is truly challenging, creativity never stops blooming in every part of the world. Gaidaa – a Dutch-based singer – is the perfect illustration of how to seize opportunities as an artist in such a context, managing to release an album and an EP during the first year of this pandemic thanks to the support of the Berlin-based platform Colors.
More than a lesson on resilience, Gaidaa is a true inspiration when it comes to celebrating and honouring heritage. In 2019, during the political crisis in Sudan, she wrote a peaceful and meaningful song to bring awareness to the current state. Growing up in the middle of two different cultures – the Netherlands and Sudan – the investigation of her own identity led her to the beautiful artist she is today. Through this complexity, a unique artist with an authentic voice has risen.
