"HOME" WITH BEN MULWANA
Listen and learn all about the music sensation Ben Mulwana!
What hot sounds in the city should fans be listening to of yours right now?
Fans should check out my new single “Home” that is dropping on Thursday, March 31 !
How has the reception been to new music?
My new music sounds completely different from my first EP, and the reception and anticipation for my releases has been so beautiful. I definitely took my time developing and recording the new material because I wanted my audience to experience them at their fullest and most complete form.
What are you looking forward to most when you perform in front of an audience this year?
The thing I look forward to the most is a raw connection with the audience any time I perform, especially this year. I am performing with my full band for many of my upcoming shows so there is going to be a different energy in each of the songs that we perform.
What was the intention set for your music?
When I started playing music I felt that it was a party trick, something that made me stand out. That changed after writing my first song in 2019, when I performed “Wano Naawe” at an open mic in Milwaukee a few days after writing it. Afterwards, a gentleman who seemed to have had a particularly hard day turned to me and said, “I needed to hear that, thank you.” That moment set the intention for my music; I want it to remind everyone that in whatever situation you may find yourself, you are not alone.
What was the most important message to impart with your music?
My conversation with the gentleman at the open mic in Milwaukee continued for quite a while. We talked about where we had grown up, which even though it was worlds apart, was in many ways similar. He shared with me something that has stayed with me to this day: the world needs a friend, a brother, someone that can speak to its soul. I hope that is the message my music always carries.
How do you want your fans to treat themselves after listening to your music?
I would love my fans to feel loved, stay positive, grow and show love.
What is a song of yours that you have on repeat right now to set the mood for 2022?
My new single “Home” has been on repeat this week in the studio and I simply cannot wait for it to be out!
