PLAYLIST PT. 12: LIL HALIMA

vor 1 Monat
Happy Monday! Today’s OOR Studio x Fräulein playlist comes from the Kenyan-Norwegian singer Lil Halima.

With her mixtape Brown Girl Diary, the 21-year-old musician documented her romantic relationships and the exploration of her identity. She is strongly influenced by her childhood, which she spent in rural Norway in a village with only 4000 inhabitants, together with her Norwegian mother and her Kenyan father. Various cultural influences with which she grows now also shape her music. American hip hop and African music influenced her, particularly through her father. The fact that she is different on many levels from many other Norwegians caused her some difficulties, but now she can finally celebrate it – with her very own beauty standards and life. Last month her new single „Friends“ was released, together with a „home-made“ music video, which you can see here.

Lil Halima made a playlist for us, with 20 of her favorite songs:

„I simply put together a list of songs I am listening to right now, that have some meaning to me. I figured I shouldn’t think too hard about this, otherwise it would be a very difficult task. I then realized that the majority of artists on this list are women of color. Which is nice, and it makes sense. So here is a mix you can dance to, cry to, groove to and just enjoy.”

Shadow Man – Noname
„I love this song, it gets me every time. It also has such an intricate lyrics, and you always notice something new.“
