BANA is an Eritrean multidisciplinary artist based in Oakland, CA. She deeply believes in the importance of being yourself (yes, you!). She started making art in 2016 after a series of epiphanies led her to understand that the most important thing anyone can do with their limited time on Earth is to explore their infinite potential, possibilities, and curiosities. Her vision is to inspire people to believe in themselves, who they can become, and the good they can create in the world. In her work, she explores the themes of adventure, spirituality, healing, play, love and triumph. Her intention is to uplift Eritrean-American culture through sharing her voice and unique experiences. BANA's first songs are out now, as a featured artist on the album People Eat Music by ABUNAI.
