NO COVER! BY DONATION…
Edoheart (Eseohe Arhebamen) is an experimental African artist. She was born in Nigeria, raised in Detroit city and is currently living in New York. Edoheart grew up in a family that sang religious songs together. During her teenage years, she gave poetry-slam performances in Detroit that evolved into free-improvisation vocalization soundtracks which incorporated African songs and Edoheart’s poems. After studying butoh dance and touring with the Estonian performance art group, Non Grata, Edoheart’s work was transformed into her Butoh-vocal theatre performances. Edoheart’s sound is sometimes African-folk in the spirit of Miriam Makeba but Edoheart also has a noisy, unpredictable side, as in her song “Harmony” which features a wild, free-improvisation vocalization over drum-machine reverb. Edoheart’s performances combine music, dance, visual projections and performance art and have been called “powerful ritual”. Edoheart has been compared to Sun Ra in her performance style. She pairs her folk and avant-garde music with colorful installations and movement rooted in Japanese ankoku-butoh, Nigerian Edo dance theatre and whatever she happens to be interested in at the moment. The idea is to explore all communication!
