Misha Maseka (she/her)
Misha Maseka is a writer, filmmaker, opera singer and musician who has seen much of the world and its people. Born in eSwatini to Zambian parents, Misha grew up in South Africa and Australia, finally settling in Canada. Alway inquisitive about the world around her, she identifies as a multidisciplinary artist and has many expressions of her talents. When not editing childrens’ books or making documentaries, Misha makes time to write and perform music under the stage name, Lemba.
As part of this year’s Creative Incubator, Misha welcomed the opportunity to further refine her extensive skills and develop her technique in cinematography. Her lived experience as a westernized African artist gives her strength in her vision. As an ongoing student of storytelling, she deeply appreciated the opportunities for collaboration provided by working alongside all this year’s Incubator Artists.
