The Dutch-Sudanese Gaidaa has worked his way up to one of the most interesting neo-soul talents of recent years. She grew up in Eindhoven, first appeared in 2018 as a feature on Full Crate's A Storm On A Summers Day, did a COLORS session in 2019 with Morning Blue and released her debut EP Overture a year later. Her supple soul and amazing voice has not gone unnoticed by Pitchfork: "With a yearning nearly as limitless as her vocal range, the rising Dutch-Sudanese R&B singer pursues emotional resolution." This autumn, in Trix!
Some people find music but music found WAYI (pronounced [wa-yee]). Growing up at church, the 28-year-old songstress spent most of her childhood with the gospel as her faithful companion. After years of studying and covering her favorite acts, she eventually became inspired to take up her pen. What started as innocent stories and novels slowly blossomed into a bouquet of lyrics about the purest and most complex feeling: Love. With a subtle delicateness and a refreshing honesty, WAYI explores every petal and thorn of this universal theme, narrating her own experiences.
