“Lidiaana is reshaping the role of music listening- as well as music making.”
Award Winning Eritrean singer, songwriter and producer Lidiaana embodies one of London’s brightest new entrepreneurial talents, with the passion, prowess and creative dedication of a genuine artiste.
From a tender age, Lidiaana’s musical roots were in gospel, funk and RnB. She relocated from Germany to London to kick-start her career. Lidiaana finds her soul in music and has since toured venues across the globe, including the acclaimed Royal Festival Hall, O2 Arena and Royal Albert Hall. She’s performed alongside the likes of Justin Timberlake, the 1975, and London’s Philharmonic Orchestra. Touring in her Eritrean motherland saw her win the Raimoq Award#3 for the best single of the year Sawa.
In conjunction with her music, she also branched into charity work by founding the Lidiaana Foundation, which gives deprived children a chance of an education. Moreover, she has been modelling, appearing in adverts and music videos and keeping us very happy and entertained with her Happy Monday Videos aka #AfroliciousMonday.
For all her business ventures and independent entrepreneurial work she has done, she has received awards such as the award for Leadership from the London Business School.
In 2016, she released the single Timalin featuring the legendary Mo Pleasure, who was part of Earth Wind and Fire and who has played with Artists such as Michael Jackson.
Her latest song Hagerey (LYE.TV), is currently on rotation on both Eritrean, as well as on Ethiopian TV channels.
