Dua Saleh

Dua is a multidisciplinary performing artist with a haunting, retrospective sound. Using diverse afro-diasporic influences, the work produced by this artist provides audiences with ripe and unrefined emotions. Dua has gained the attention of artists throughout the Twin Cities, landing the artist the 2017 VERVE Grant, readings at places such as the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and a leading role in Sweetness of Wild.
