Like the most glistening flower from the most fertile soil, of which there is and will be only one…
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.
She assumes creative control over her artistic identity, from her visuals through to her lyrics and production with occasional help from the community. She also serves her community by creating safe spaces for healing and liberation through her organisation “Babylon Chant Down”. Created in the midst of racial turmoil and conflict, the organisation aims to unite the AfriKan community through music, art and poetry.
Listening to muva of Earth is like planting your feet in rich warm soil; blending spiritual mantras and conscious lyricism, her music is truly transformative.
