K.ZIA is a Brussels-born, world-raised, Berlin-based, singer, songwriter and artistic director. Her vibrant music blends up alternative R&B, Soul, Pop, Trap and afrobeats.
Born of a Martinican father and a Belgo-Congolese mother – internationally acclaimed Artist Zap Mama – K.ZIA was raised amongst many cultures and has travelled a world of Music and Circus giving her a unique view on art and life itself. Whether it was singing backing vocals on tour with her mother, between Japan and the States or performing alongside her father in majestic shows, the young woman was practically born on stage, and this is very much felt when seeing her perform live.
In 2018 she released her first EP « RED », since then she has been invited to open for artists such as Sampa The Great, Omar Lyefook, Tayla Parx and Kota The Friend. She describes herself as an « Afro-European mineral », her music is made to fuse cultures and genres and celebrate music and love in a safe space where everyone is welcome to be themselves.
Currently planning her biggest project yet, K.ZIA is introducing a whole new facet to her universe in her album Genesis. She will be introducing her alter ego ZIA who sings in French. Not to be missed!
Lewis Ofman :
Lewis Delhomme started playing drums in 2010 at the age of 11 years old. His practice quickly expanded to mastering the guitar and piano/keyboard, which allowed him to develop a broader musical passion.
A year later, in 2011, he played with a band as a drummer and bought his first keyboard (which is on the cover of « Yo Bene »). He begins his first compositions as Lewis OfMan thanks to GarageBand application on iPad. The first tracks were self-published in the form of an EP entitled « Disconsolate », which he made available on Bandcamp in September 2014.
Lewis then turned his attention to his solo project, experimenting with samples with his instruments and computer. It was then in April 2015 that his musical career begins. He made his first public performance at a fashion show for Afterhomework, a young Parisian fashion brand. He is then very solicited for his remixes, notably by Les Pirouettes, Hypnolove, Poom, Housse de Racket, Keziah Jones, Alt-J or Rhye.
On March 15, 2017, Lewis OfMan released his second EP, « Yo Bene”, exposing his musical maturity. The release of these tracks was then followed by a mix of solo dates and opening acts on a tour in the States and Europe. In February 2018, he produced 6 tracks on Rejjie Snow’s « Dear Annie » album and performs on stage as an opening act for the French and North American tour.
His solo performance has toured French festivals such as We Love Green, Cabourg Mon Amour and the Pitchfork Festival and a world tour including Paris, London, New York, Stockholm, Barcelona and a tour of China. Lewis will unveil his first album in autumn 2021.
