InDuna

Bio

Afro-Kiwi self-taught artist and producer InDuna (in-Doo-nah) takes flavours straight from his homeland and incorporates them into his Afropop infused soul sound. Inspired by the likes of Brenda Fassie and Ladysmith Black Mambazo, InDuna expresses himself and his experiences of growing up in a third world society through his music.

Born in South Africa, he had a rough childhood spending much of his early years growing up in the slums of Johannesburg and Limpopo. After moving into an orphanage at the age of eight, he was given the opportunity at fourteen to move to New Zealand.

InDuna started his music journey when he fell in love with music for the first time after hearing Brenda Fassie’s Nomakanjani. “It felt like love at first sight, but with music.” However, he only took an interest in producing his own music after high school. For the most part, music production has been an effective therapy for him to vent his emotions and to help cope with his past and present experiences. “The reason I started doing music was because I needed a way to handle my emotions and regular therapy wasn’t doing it for me.”

InDuna produces a range of genres including Hip-hop, R&B and Pop. As a kid being exposed to different genres of music and being part of a choir, he has been able to incorporate his experiences into any genre that he works in. His roots also allow him to blend his vocals and sounds from Africa to bring a unique vibe and narrative to his music and capture the essence of him as an artist.

InDuna’s single Save Me from his self-produced EP Dreams of an Underdog has racked up 58,000 views across YouTube and Facebook. His most recent release, Smooth Criminal has reached 78,000 views. Alongside his own musical endeavours, he also writes and produces for other artists.

InDuna has performed at Newtown Festival 2020, Sofa Wellington and Going Local 2019 along with other smaller gigs. He was to play at CubaDupa and the Auckland International Cultural Festival in 2020, but was unable to do so because of Covid19.

During lockdown, InDuna has been able to finish his second EP due to be released soon. He will also be releasing some other music and performing later in 2020.
