Daada, moniker of multicultural musician Maike Valentina Kusserow, debuted her single ‘Moonlight’ through Daada Music on April 12th. She has garnered significant attention on TikTok and Instagram in Kenya, amassing over 500K views across two videos of her singing. Her music has found placement on playlists on Spotify and Boomplay, while she has been featured in interviews on radio stations spanning Europe, Africa, and Latin America. Noteworthy recognition has come her way from Amazon Music Germany and esteemed media outlets such as The Citizen and RBB Kultur. Looking ahead to June 2024, Daada is slated to unveil her second EP, promising a fusion of global genres that will resonate with admirers of multicultural artists such as Mayra Andrade and Ibeyi.

‘Moonlight’ enchants with its captivating melody and irresistible rhythm. Daada’s exquisite vocals harmonize seamlessly with the pulsating Afro-Colombian beat, creating a spellbinding dance that effortlessly captivates listeners.

Daada shared: ‘Moonlight’ is the result of a great deal of inner turmoil rushing out of me and into a song in an hour or two last September. It is an explosion of emotions. The best thing about it is that it’s also an explosion of the different places I am from and a journey through them. It’s trilingual. On one hand it was made by two Colombians (myself and Claudio), so you will feel Reggaeton and even Cumbia vibes. At the same time you will hear an African vibe rhythmically. And of course, it was made in an apartment on Sonnenallee, one of the busiest, loudest streets of Berlin. So there’s some Berlin in it too.”
