Momentum: Eliza Shaddad

Eliza Shaddad’s singular artistry is the product of an incredibly diverse and borderless upbringing. Born to Sudanese and Scottish parents and raised across seven countries, she is the descendent of a long line of progressive artists and academics dating back to the 1800s.
Having released two EPs on indie label Beatnik Creative, her music has found acclaim amongst the loftiest tastemakers. Drawing on a love of 90’s grunge and trip hop it’s an indie rock triumph of deep dark grooves and laconic vocals.
Eliza also manages to be both a serious grafter and a true fighter for the causes she believes in. She co-founded the female arts collective Girls Girls Girls with fellow musician Samantha Lindo; and for six years has been working to empower women within the arts through special cross-disciplinary events across the UK, and to raise awareness and funding for the anti-Female genital mutilation charity ‘Orchid Project’.
Not beholden to any one political, musical, or intellectual culture, Eliza represents everything that we’re coming to celebrate about identity. Identity is amorphous. To think otherwise, no matter who you are or where you come from, is to close your mind and to box yourself off from the shapes of things as they really are.
