XJAZZ! FESTIVAL 2023
muva of Earth is an alternative jazz singer and ASCENDING SOULSTRESS from tribe ‘Crown of Ọṣun’ in Yorubaland, Nigeria. Born and raised in London and growing up in both London & Kent under the influence of Amy Winehouse and Beyoncé. Moving back to London in her teenage years marks an important moment for muva of Earth as she had the freedom to immerse herself into her music, from studying at college to gracing stages around London with her soulful croons. Today, the ever-evolving being is deeply inspired by Sun Ra, Sade, Alice Coltrane and Fela Kuti. By connecting to her Yoruba roots, muva of Earth’s music explores the complexities of identity, the self and human connections over a bed of afrofuturistic rhythms and atmospheric horns.
