Otis Mensah is a musician and performing-artist exploring the intersection of poetry and experimental music(s). Taking influence from the rhythmic and expressive freedom of Jazz, Otis’ work uses aesthetic language as an instrument to solo through themes of identity & existence. Since Otis' tenure as Sheffield's first Poet Laureate and debuts at Glastonbury and We Out Here, Otis has played with the likes of Moor Mother, Benjamin Zephaniah and Little Simz.
Somadina is making music for herself. Part of the global generation of women where literally anything and nothing is simultaneously possible, Somadina is finding her way one song at a time and cutting straight to the point. Her music is a tribute to the multiplicity of coming of age in a culture of metamodernism. In her 22 years, Somadina has travelled the globe, collecting experiences from a variety of places to call home. The genre blending nature of Somadina’s music is testament to her disparate references and ability to create her own unique sound. While Somadina’s music varies from track to track her unmistakable powerhouse of a voice is the ever present connection across her work. “If people can both hear and see my vision, I figure they should be able to feel it..” And it is this creation of a feeling, a mood - an undeniable energy - that makes Somadina such an intoxicating proposition.
