Athens-based musician and vocalist Evita Manji is connecting the dots between the human experience, climate change, quantum physics and death, in an attempt to dig deeper into the primordial truth of existence. Through their carefully constructed practice of synthesis and sound design, led by choir inspired vocals, they fabricate musical worlds consisted of ever-expanding sonic organisms and shapeless solid non-materials.
In 2021 Evita launched their platform myxoxym, releasing the singles “OIL/TOO MUCH” and “EYES/NOT ENOUGH”, as well as curating the first edition of the fundraising compilation series “PLASMODIUM I”, aiming to raise environmental awareness and provide relief to the greek wildlife.
Since their debut performance at the SNFCC alongside Eartheater (Athens, September 2021), Evita has been performing in cities across Europe like London, Prague, Krakow and Zurich, at festivals such as Unsound, Borderline, Rhizom and Lunchmeat, where they shared stage with Amnesia Scanner at the Convent of St. Agnes.
They have collaborated with numerous artists across various media and exhibited sound pieces at galleries like Kunsthalle Basel (in collaboration with Young Boy Dancing Group) and Saigon Athens.
