Bridging Colliding Worlds... "Anordicana"
Scandinavian Pop with Americana
Afro-Americana- A new genre
In 2014, Anouschka visited Kenya, and noticed that people were playing hits from the Western sphere in spite of a rich local pop scene, To help raise awareness for this scene, she recorded the album "Shine" (Angaza in Swahili) Anouschka is the first western woman to fuse Western songwriting with current East African pop beats (by Kenyan producer Teddy B) and Swahili- which she studied while in Kenya. The album bridges cultures as well as secular and non-secular faiths with its spiritual and family-friendly message. Proceeds help orphans and the poor. Tracks have already been featured in Kenya on TV and radio. Anouschka is also devoted to wildlife causes. The album includes a reggae version of "Dying to be Free" -the original folk version was campaign song 2014 for in 60 countries for the Global March to Save the African Lion from canned hunting.
