Born in West Africa from an Ivorian mother and a French father. Eva Sita became a war refugee while moving to Paris at only 10 years old. A few years later, against all odds, she became the first Ivorian woman in history to graduate from Berklee College of Music.
The singer-songwriter & beat-maker pays tribute to her roots through catchy pop music.The musician speaks and sings in three languages and accompanies herself on just as many instruments, one including the Kora, a traditional African string instrument.
When creating “Joon” Eva states, “I first started with chords, I chose some ‘spicy’ triad chords and decided to play them with a Latin rhythmic piano comping. I then sang some melodies borrowing from the harmonic minor scale ( often used in middle eastern music ) as I really wanted to give off the ‘vibe’ of the Persian guy I was writing this song for. It was a funny experience to write such a nice and honest breakup song.”
