Mimi Zulu is an American singer, lyricist, and poet. Her repertoire includes: soul, blues, jazz, trip-hop, electronica, spoken word, and psychedelic.
Mimi is dedicated to the expansive and magical quality of the creative process. "The less I think of me, the more the truth comes out." With her big bright eyes and disarming laugh, she is a beaming embodiment of authentic spirit. Passionate about equality and community, Mimi's lyrics are inspired by the lives of those whose voices often go unheard. Her art is an offering of encouragement, hope, and empowerment; a testimony to the value of a life lived simply, openly, and from the heart.
With the release of her first solo album A Love Parade, Mimi reveals an intimate look into the many tones and textures of the genre she coined "experimental soul"; which is equal parts neo-soul and trip-hop.
For Mimi, music provides the opportunity to feel what's real in a world gone not-so-comfortably numb. "The goal," she says, "is to be in a space where I can remind people to just think. To remind them of their insides, of their soul and their feelings. To make them feel their own skin."
In the world of hip-hop, Kiyoshi is utterly unique: a versatile rapper, poet, and singer/songwriter who explores the alternative direction of conscious living. His passion to deliver entertaining and thought-provoking messages and hope for humanity is evident throughout the deep layers of his Pacific Islander and African American heritage and musical roots he embraces like no one else has (or could).
Trained by his music teacher father and seasoned through years of poetry slams, talent shows, and musical and rap performances, Kiyoshi found his audience in the Metro Detroit hip-hop scene in the early 2000's while a student at Eastern Michigan University. Always at the grindstone, he saw success as a rapper and songwriter while earning his degree in Communications.
His creative combination of soul and swagger were immediately obvious upon the 2004 release of his tour de force "Unorthodox Slang." That disc, in addition to his EP "Headknod Oddyssey," full length album "The Talent Show (2009)," and his 2013 valentine's mixtape "Herstory in the Making," all proved popular with hugely diverse audiences from all over the world. Kiyoshi's last project "The Affirmation EP" made a huge impact in inspiring the masses. He is currently working on a new project set to debut in early 2016. All of his work leading up to now, has set the stage for a rewarding career and is still receiving immense support and admiration across the globe.
As shown by his endless and successful hustling for listeners, he is neither a hobbyist nor an amateur. A rising and undeniable voice in hip-hop who has been compared to Common and L.L. Cool J., Kiyoshi has shared the stage with Big Sean, Aloe Blacc, Mayer Hawthorne, Matisyahu, MC Yogi, Danny Brown, Eligh of Living Legends, Nahko Bear, Saul Williams, Elzhi of Slum Village, Black Milk, One Be Lo of Binary Star, Matthew Santos, Fred Hammond, DJ Drez, Luminaries, Kirtaniyas, and more. Yoshi's work has also been featured on MTV, VH1, FUSE TV On Demand, and countless other networks.
He is a veteran of the business with underground credibility and mainstream appeal. His refreshingly pure, conscious, and soul-driven music as well as his intense personal charisma are making him unstoppable in 2015-2016. Watch yourself. Kiyoshi already blew up right before your eyes.
