Gaidaa Releases Amazon Original “Falling Higher” (DJ Moma Remix)
Today Sudanese/Dutch singer/songwriter Gaidaa has released an Amazon Original track “Falling Higher” (DJ Moma Remix), available to stream and purchase only on Amazon Music.
“I’ve crossed paths with DJ Moma a couple of times, and love what he does. He also happens to be Sudanese too, which is awesome,” says Gaidaa. “Working with him for the remix felt like the most natural fit. I was more than happy to trust him to do his thing, and he definitely delivered, so thanks Moma! Big shoutout! I also thought it was really cool that he was quarantining in Zanzibar, Tanzania when he made the remix, I feel like it genuinely brings a warmer summery energy to the song. I enjoy when other creators take on a song I wrote, at the end of the day a story can be told many different ways, and I love what Moma did with this one.”
Netherlands-based Sudanese singer and songwriter Gaidaa accesses soul in its purest form through organic R&B punctuated by acoustic instrumentation and lyrics laced with raw vulnerability. Growing up between The Netherlands and Sudan, Gaidaa’s Kehlani cover made its way to actor Bluey Robinson who touted her talents. In 2017, she also
caught the attention of producer Full Crate. Together, they cooked up “A Storm On A Summer’s Day,” which has amassed nearly 10 million total streams to date.
Balancing schooling with her recently launched music career, Gaidaa dove headfirst into writing, recording and touring. In 2019, COLORS invited her to record “Morning Blue” at their studio. The title referenced the #BlueForSudan campaign, encouraging social media users to change their profile pictures to blue in solidarity with Sudan and in honor of a protesting victim who favored the color steel blue. On its heels, her song “I Like Trouble” quickly saw streaming success and was dubbed a “Trojan Horse for disobedience by The FADER.
The rising artist holds nothing back on her critically lauded debut EP, Overture, available now on all digital streaming platforms.
Amazon Music listeners can find the track on “The High End,” the playlist with top shelf vibes for the discerning listener. Customers can also simply ask, “Alexa play the Amazon Original by Gaidaa” in the Amazon app for iOS and Android and on Alexa-enabled devices. In addition to Gaidaa, Amazon Music listeners can access hundreds of Amazon Originals featuring both emerging and established artists across numerous genres, available to stream and purchase only on Amazon Music.
