Sidewalk Chalk
Sidewalk Chalk
Sidewalk Chalk is the evolution of hip-hop, soul, and jazz. This internationally touring band has released 4 albums since 2012 with their most recent (An Orchid Is Born, Ropeadope Records) produced by Robert "Sput" Searight of Snarky Puppy. The album was heralded as "perfectly combining musicality with sincere lyricism. You will jump for joy, cry, & pinch yourself wondering if it’s possible for a single album to be THIS darn good." (Ohestee)
Dua is a multidisciplinary performing artist based in Minneapolis. Within the first few months of their career, this artist won the 2017 VERVE Grant, a contract with Button poetry, a song premiere on Minnesota Public Radio's "The Current", a feature on Button Poetry, a curating position with Patrick’s Cabaret's Controlled Burn, an artist showcase through Amnesty International and Sofarsounds for their #GiveAHome benefit show, and much more. Within the past year, this artists has graced stages like First Ave, Button Poetry, The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Five Watt, The Illusion Theater, The Cedar Cultural Center, Intermedia Arts, and so on.

Dua is also not limited to the music and poetry world. This budding artist has also gained attention in the film world by landing a primary role in the indie web series Sweetness of Wild participating in Free Black Dirt's production in Queertopia 2017, and having poetry featured in the film “Baptism” during the MN KINO Film Score Fest.

Though gaining attention as a performing artist, Dua has primarily been known for political organizing and workshop facilitation throughout the state of Minnesota through organizations and programs such as Unchain Our Children, Fighting Injustice Through Human Rights and more. Dua hopes to explore art as a means to engage in complex expressions of humanity.
