Hanna Sikasa - Sequel / Sequel" is what Afro-German singer and composer Hanna Sikasa calls her new album: "Fortsetzung". One could therefore think of it as a continuation of her debut album "Origin". A continuation of her path to success, which was abruptly interrupted by the pandemic in a decisive phase. A con-tinuation of her artistic process, which she herself describes for the album as follows: "The songs tell of letting go and growing, of the search for one's own identity, of loneliness and deep connec-tion, sometimes also of saying goodbye - perhaps simply of growing up. And yet "Sequel" is also a premiere. Origin" was released without a label and only digitally and on vinyl, so now we can speak of a debut CD. Above all, however, we can now experience a Hanna Sikasa who has matured once again, who has honed herself as a singer and composer just as much as she has honed the proven and new material, which is rounded off on the album to form a re-markable whole. If the Süddeutsche Zeitung already wrote about her in 2019: "Catchy me-lodies, but sung and arranged in a complex way, with poppy clarity, jazzy timbre and poetic, sometimes almost hypnotic lyrics, that is Sikasa's already quite distinctive recipe", she has now brought her music even more succinctly to the point. Sequel" is the culmination of Hanna Sikasa's career. Born and raised in Augsburg, she is the daugh-ter of a Kenyan and a Swiss, who as a child simply wanted to make music and sing. She had piano lessons throughout her school years, and after graduating from high school, she decided to study music. More like pop, but one infused with jazz, soul and R'n'B elements, never arbitrary, always quite personal. Music that stands out so recognizably that Sikasa received the Music Prize of the City of Augsburg for it in 2017 and a music scholarship from the City of Munich in 2018.
