Dessa has built her career bucking traditional genre designations—she’s rapped at hip-hop festivals, sung with a 100-voice choir, and co-written classical works for orchestra. Genre-busting isn’t enough for this artistic risk-taker: whether performing in a bombed-out hospital in Warsaw, a velvet-lined theater in New York, or atop a folding chair in Johannesburg, Dessa’s work is ambitious, inventive, and designed to defy audience expectations. On stage she’s funny and ferocious, but also tender—her live show includes rapid-fire rap songs, heartbreak ballads, catchy choruses and charismatic banter. A proud member of the Minneapolis-based Doomtree collective, this “hyper-intellectual, whiskey-drinking poet with a hopeless romantic streak and a curiosity about neuroscience” is making a multi-generational, interdisciplinary impact.
