GLOR1A is a UK-based multidisciplinary artist rooted in experimental R&B music and Afrofuturism. She strives to marry music, art and technology, and actively imagines how African diaspora will be visualized in the future. GLOR1A is signed to music artist GAIKA’s label The Spectacular Empire, and has worked with experimental Black artists throughout Europe and America. After releasing her debut record in 2019, she has performed worldwide in prominent festivals including Glastonbury Festival (UK) and the Chale Wote Festival (GH).

During the COVID-19 pandemic, GLOR1A has created a web series called Dystopian Futures, a collaborative interview and performance broadcast examining the effects that activism, art and technology have on shaping the future. Along with three other established artists, she initiated Nine Nights, a music TV series presenting Black music, visual art, film and performance worldwide, while contributing to Black-focused charities. She has collaborated with key figures in the Black experimental space including GAIKA on a commissioned live soundtrack for Khalik Allah’s cult film Black Mother, and building an AI-powered vocal symphony for Somerset House Studios (UK).

Seeing God(dess) blurs the line between fantasy and reality, tackling one of the biggest problems of modern society: environmental colonialism and climate change.
