Somali-Canadian singer-songwriter Cold Specks sits down with Okayafrica during a visit to Johannesburg.
Ladan Hussein recently got a suitcase full of diracs from her mom. One for each show of her Africa tour this month. Last week, the Toronto-based singer-songwriter, known professionally as Cold Specks, stepped foot on the continent for the first time. During the visit she’ll perform in Maputo (Azgo), Johannesburg (Akum Agency’s Southern African Music Festival Circuit sideshow), Durban (Zakifo), Swaziland (Bushfire) and Réunion Island (Sakifo).
