Born in West Africa from an Ivorian mother and a French father, Eva Sita moved to Paris as a war refugee at only 10 years old. Music and faith secretely helped her cope with this traumatic event.
At 21 she found the strength to chase her musical dreams. A few years later, against all odds, she became the first Ivorian woman in history to graduate from the prestigious Berklee College of Music, Boston, MA.
In the African tradition, the Kora ( an African string instrument ) should only be played by men from a certain lineage but this rebellious artist didn’t take no for an answer and made it part of her sound anyway.
It seems like being bold pays off.. as one of her latest show was featured in Page 6 of the New York Post and her past work has been featured by many other household names such as the Boston Sun, Milc Magazine, Aston Microphones, Afrique Magazine, Vox Africa, and many more.
The singer-songwriter & beat-maker pays tribute to her roots through catchy alternative pop music and R&B. This New York based musician speaks and sings in three languages and accompanies herself on just as many instruments.
