Kashimana is a singer-songwriter with a rich soulful blues voice that soars through her uplifting pop compositions. Along with her distinctive voice, Kashimana’s stage presence pulls you in and leaves you in a warm and fuzzy thrall that’s hard to shake. Her songs are catchy, and paint compelling stories of her experiences in Africa, Europe and America.

Born in Nigeria, Kashimana traveled the world with her amazing parents, who influenced her to love music and art by singing around the house and owning a very eclectic music collection. At the young age of five, she discovered Michael Jackson, and thus began her love for performing. Later on, she was waylaid by the decision to become a doctor but during her final year of studying Biomedical Sciences, Kashimana discovered the urge to write music was stronger than the urge to become a doctor. In addition to her Bachelor degree in Biomedical Sciences, Kashimana has an Associate degree in Music Production and a Bachelor degree in Composition and Songwriting.

Currently, Kashimana performs as a solo musician, with her band Kashimana and The Halos, and sings with four Minnesota based bands. The four Minnesota bands include The Champions (70s soul and funk Band), Hornucopia (Tribute to horn band), Power of 10 (Top 40 band) and Kash and Khary (eclectic duo).

“Songwriting is such an important part of my life and it is my ultimate goal to share the love of songwriting and the gift of song with people.”
Kashimana Ahua
