BIOGRAPHY

 

Mimi Zulu embraces the many tones and textures of the genre she coined "experimental soul" - which is equal parts neo-soul and trip-hop.  She has been fortunate to share the stage with:  Macy Gray, Ben Harper, Thievery Corporation, Ibeyi, Quantic, Beats Antique, Kool Keith, Daley, & more!

 

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.

 

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."
