FROM OSLO, NORWAY
Queendom is a musical duo based in Oslo, Norway. Monica Ifejilika (NO/NIG) and Asta Busingye Lydersen (NO/UG) call their music Africana - a Pan-African blend of traditional and urban musical styles from the continent, coupled with American and European impulses.
The queens have extensive experience as performers, journalists and writers, having featured at festivals, on TV and radio for almost 2 decades. Their music celebrates a strong, feminist Afropean identity.
Queendom is known for their political conciousness and energetic live performances. The female performing arts collective was established in Oslo; Norway in 1999. In 2007, they were awarded the Oslo City Artist Award, and have since performed in Poland, Zimbabwe, Sweden, and all over Norway.
