About
Born Latanya Hinton and raised in New Haven (USA), Akua Naru’s journey to internationally acclaimed hip hop artist has led her from the city’s Newhallville section to Cologne, Germany where she currently resides and creates music. Along this female wordsmith’s journey, there have been many stops – Philadelphia, China, and Ghana, among others – all of which informed the wisdom and perspective which is evident in her music. The next step on this journey takes here to sub-Saharan Africa where she will perform in Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Ruanda, Uganda and Kenya.

The Goethe-Institut Kenya and The Alchemist are proud to present this unique Hip Hop artist. Check out her exemplary live skills here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9tgfx68rac
