Introducing our Migrant Talks video series with Ghanian-born, New-York-based artist, Azizaa.
We are not here for the semantics, the legal jargons, the meaningless labels…It’s not about numbers, it is about the people. Fearless storytellers, soulful adventurers; the Migrant Talks series is dedicated to the people who have refused to be the victims of an unfair system and decided to take their destiny into their own hands. It is for the people who continue to thrive for a another life, wherever this might be – at least they try.
Coming from the Anlo Ewe tribe of Southern Ghana, West Africa, Azizaa grew up in Irvington New Jersey and loves the fact that she has the best of both worlds, Africa and America.
Her voice and music is a sound like no other, and clearly you can see and hear the influence and effect of the American Pop culture on a Young African Born Artist.
The world cannot be viewed solely through a western perspective.
We are global daydreamers, from Tehran to Ilha de Moçambique, we firmly believe that the world cannot be viewed solely through a western perspective. We are passionate about what we are doing and want to make our voices heard as far as we can. At least we try.
