Ohmme
Ohmme
Ohmme is an experiment in voice and sound by Sima Cunningham and Macie Stewart. Inspired by the Chicago improvisational music scene, Cunningham and Stewart joined forces in 2014. Their combined vocal and musical talents yield a dichotomy of harmony and chaos leaving the audience wanting more. Ohmme has been compared to PJ Harvey, Kate Bush and Tortoise, but their inane chemistry creates something uniquely satisfying and different from their predecessors.
Alina Bea

Progressive pop à la Bjork and Kate Bush
Amenta Abioto
Amenta Abioto
Songwriter, producer, and actor, Amenta Abioto is on the cutting edge of all that is musical, theatrical, and literary. Her music is boldly mystical and soul-fired, and her raw live performances invoke elements of both theatrical surprise and magic through ancient African diasporic sounds and stories. Weaved into syncopated rhythms and dichotomies of comedic proportions, Amenta surprises and tantalizes audiences with mind bending ideas. She brings to the music scene funky academia while skipping vocally from soul shaking gospel to smooth jazz and then onto hip hop rhythms wrapped in West African beats.

Graduating from Idllywild Art’s Academy in 2010, she trained in musical theatre. Since graduating she has courted the music scene and produced one self-titled EP, Amenta Abioto , and one upcoming album, Opening Flower Hymns. Receiving inspiration from the best-seller work Women Who Run With the Wolves, mythological characterization and cultural stories are reflected in the original works of Amenta Abioto.
