OK Naledi is an Afro-House music project created by Queer, Motswana Canadian musician Kimberly Naledi Sunstrum.
Traditional sub-Saharan clean guitar lines, classic deep bass, movement-inspiring beats and that iconic, driving Afro-House tempo - these are the pieces that define OK Naledi.
There is a lot of complexity when it comes to being a visibly Queer, biracial, womxn, artist who grew up in Botswana, South Africa, Malawi, Sudan, and Sri Lanka and is creating music in a Western demographic. It's important for diasporic marginalized folks to stay connected to their heritage and roots and to push back from the ongoing pressure to assimilate and fit in. This pandemic and all it's boil over moments exacerbated the importance of nurturing identity and infusing it in the music creation process. This is the essence of OK Naledi -- proudly, powerfully and consistently.
