Midnimo, the Somali word for “unity,” is a program that features Somali artists from Minnesota and around the world in residencies and events that increase understanding of Somali culture through music. Midnimo is reviving and preserving Somalia’s rich musical traditions while fostering social connections between generations and cultures in the heart of the largest Somali diaspora in North America.


The Cedar Cultural Center just wrapped a month-long residency with London-based Somali singer Nimco Yasin. Watch videos from her time in Minnesota below, or read more about Nimco and her residency here.
