Powerful poet, soulful singer and vivid live performer,
Proudly representing Somali, grew up in Finland and bgan her music carreer 2 years ago in Sweden.
Did she hit 2015 with her single Tabanja.
Her lyrics tell one heavy message along a quite breathtaking black and white visual depicting a « suffocating truth of a world caught in a downward spiral. » (Cherrie Hersi).
TABANJA is a scream out loud, with hints of anger, tiredness with a little bit of hope in the voice.
TABANJA is realistic short book made of chapters relating stories going on for too long:
« This is my thoughts and my reflections, there is a truth in our streets, but this song is just one chapter. There are more chapters and before I give you my song I will first give you my reflection on reality. » Cherrie Hersi.
Either heavy powerful or lightly soothing, one shall always take delight listening to Cherrie Hersi’s voice:
She’s genuinely an authentic, heartfelt Soul/Rnb artist.
No wonder why her name was worth remembering in 2015.
