On this episode of The Qonnect, Qali speaks with songwriter, musician, abstract painter and writer Wanja Wohoro. With a focus on intimate storytelling, all of her artistic work investigates identity, relationships, love and history within the feminine and Black/African experience through a personal lens. In 2018 she released her debut album Matriarch which is a 9 track ode to both womanhood, home and youth. Since then she has continued to record, collaborate and perform around the world. In 2021 she launched the 'Black Glitter Newsletter' which is a resource newsletter with tips and insights to navigating the independent music industry as a young musician. She currently resides in California and is performing and working on her follow up project to be released in late 2022..
During this conversation, Wanja and Qali talk about reclaiming one's path, the pressures for creative people in staying authentic, becoming an indie baby and evolving as people.
