KEN NANA

TRAKTIVIST RADIO - EP 029 w MIKNNA

 


We interview MIKNNA, a Los Angeles-based melodic Hip-Hop Electronic R&B duo cultivating a sonic excursion that carries listeners to a futuristic yet contemporary world. In just 2 short years since forming, MIKNNA have accumulated millions of plays on Spotify and have completed headline tours in the USA and Europe! We discuss their journey including the decision to pursue their career as a duo instead of doing it individually. We learn about their debut album "ESCAPE," including the inspiration behind it. We also dive into the joys and challenges of being independent artist. Lastly, MIKNNA blesses us with an exclusive, live in-studio, performance of "Godspace"!
