The Horniman Museum and Gardens, 696 Resident Artists programme is for music artists at the cutting edge of south London’s music scene. During a year-long residency, Resident Artists will develop an artistic project in response to the Horniman’s collection of musical instruments which is one of the most comprehensive and exciting in the UK. DemiMa, an electronic soul artist and sonic-poet from South West London and South Africa’s eThekwini’s south coast. Inspired by nature and Afro-futurism, she presents a unique form of electronic soul fusing ‘voxstrumentals’ (live vocal looping with psychedelic effects) with English and isiZulu lyrics.
