Kesiena Wanogho, aka KESSWA, is an interdisciplinary artist from Detroit, Michigan. Her work integrates performance, sound, light, music, and mantra to create a singular experience, sonically rooted in a compelling, experimental blend of electronic, soul, and R&B. KESSWA’s most recent work, “Is My Mind A Machine Gun?” (2021) with Detroit-based DJ and producer Shigeto, premiered on the MOCAD’s new media platform Daily Rush. She has performed in support of avant-garde Black artists such as Sudan Archives, the Sun Ra Arkestra, Rashaad Newsome, and Sterling Toles at institutions such as the Cleveland Museum of Art, the University of Michigan Museum of Art, and the Detroit Institute of Arts. Experience the soulful sonic meditations of KESSWA live at A2SF this summer.
