The Zimbabwean born, SE-London raised performance artist, composer and producer is a creative force to be reckoned with. Across her two-decade genre-hopping career, ESKA’s titan reputation as a live performer and songwriter brought invitations to collaborate with a host of internationally renowned artists; a list that is as bravely diverse as her music itself; Grace Jones, Zero 7, UNKLE, Tony Allen and fashion designer Rick Owens, to name a few! As a choir director, she has lead a variety of vocal ensembles, including a 150-voice ‘improvising’ choir for Bobby McFerrin.
With credits on over 150 released titles, including contributions to 3 Mercury-nominated albums, her eponymous debut was subsequently nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 2015. This year, ESKA releases her 2nd solo album and commences her first opera with a development commission from the Royal Opera House.
