R&B Soul artist, Mi-kaisha, grew up on the streets of Sydney’s music scene. The soundtrack of her childhood included soulful tunes from the 90s and island tunes from her father’s Koori Radio Hip-Hop show ‘Island Hopping’.
She describes herself as a city ‘black fulla’ and represents a beautifully melted dichotomy of sweet and deadly. Her voice is phenomenally soulful and sugary, and yet her lyrics represent hard-hitting often political messages about being a young black woman in urban Australia. She draws inspiration from her idols Lauryn Hill and the strong women in her community.
Don’t let her street swag misguide you. This girl is polished. She’s an accomplished musician and uncompromising social justice advocate. Mi-kaisha represents gritt, groove, soul and sass.
