“Iva is a collective conscious, a DNA dating as far back as the days when water ran through these plains. A shared knowledge passed down through the dust and sand of this baron land…” A collaboration of artists bound by the inherit essence of music; sharing stories of forgiveness, unity and awareness. Music made with the intention to project positive power, to kindle the wise spirit we posses within and to heal. Finding unity in diversity, the ensemble is made up of multidisciplinary artists from varying backgrounds across the African continent. Music to move you into meditation, rythmic guitar laced with traditional African base drum, percussions echoing the sounds of ancient calls and harmonious vocals wrapped up in the warmth of an autumn morning. The collective have roots embedded in the Eastern Cape where they have performed at The Schreiner Karoo Writers Festival in 2019, and were presented to the award winning author JM Coetzee on his 80th birthday at the Amazwi Museum of Literature in Makhanda 2020.
