About Zili Misik:
Zili, founded in 2000, has been bridging cultures, generations, and continents for 16 years. All female, Zili performs an acoustic & electronic fusion of roots music of the African diaspora. With captivating sounds that evoke the African continent, Zili retraces routes of forced exile and cultural resistance through diasporic rhythm and song. Powerful Haitian, Brazilian and West African rhythms infuse Zili's original creations and traditional folksongs. Reconnecting Haitian mizik rasin, Jamaican roots reggae, Afro-Brazilian samba, Afro-Cuban son, and African American spirituals, blues, jazz, and neo soul, Zili Misik honors its influences while creating a sound that is uniquely its own: New World Soul.
About Emma back:
Emma Back is a dynamic and passionate performer. Songstress, vocalist, fiddler and live looping artist, she emerges from Balkan, French, Klezmer and Americana Folk influences. With Sensual, Bold and Raw Expression, she uses a loop pedal system to create an intricate sonic experience yet her songs embody at their core the simplicity and heart of the troubadour. Emma’s lyrics have been called “visual to the point of a cinematic short film” (Colorado Music Buzz), invoking the voice of the divine feminine and world issues of war and diaspora. Her powerful presence onstage creates a sacred intimate space where her audience can touch their humanity and deepest longing for connection.
