EtherMia - Live at The Collaboration | Rich Mix, Shoreditch
EtherMia are a unique project that has been conceptualised by 3 extremely talented singers Chai, Sofi & Lucy, who are also trained dancers in classical ballet, contemporary and modern dance.
Over the last fourteen months, EtherMia have collaborated with various writers, producers, choreographers and actors. Recently, they have written songs with an international artist and have worked with an award winning gospel choir. Along with their own training in the arts, this process has enabled them to develop a symbiotic relationship; between themselves and their music.
EtherMia's ability to fuse fashion and dance with their music enables them to have an endless resource to draw from which in turn, manifests in the wide subjects they address through their writing.
