Bio

Zeadala is a mixed raced South-West Sydney based singer-songwriter and actor. Through her love of storytelling, she sings of connection to land, social inequality and self-empowerment in her works. The word Eadala itself is an Arabic one meaning justice- aligning with her desire to uphold fairness, honesty, and equality for the world she lives in.

As a woman of colour living in Australia, a performer, and mentor to young musicians and poets- Zeadala challenges normative narratives within society with her raw and unique style, simple yet rhythmic guitar compositions, soothing vocals and vastly bold lyrics. Her presence warms hardened hearts like cups of honey and lemon tea and has people nodding to the truth and vulnerability she effortlessly conveys in her live shows. It is no wonder she has supported international artists like Omar Offendum (US) at his exclusive concert in Sydney, Rebel Diaz (US) and Akala (UK) at his artists and community talks as part of Sydney Ideas.

Zeadala has been mentored by some of Sydney’s most respected female artists such as MC Trey. She is an interdisciplinary artist who draws on Hip Hop elements of rhythm and poetry as well as soulful melodies to create sounds that range from folk to soul to conscious Hip Hop. Think Laura Marling meeting Lauryn hill for tea on a Sunday. She has performed at NSW Parliament House for the 2016’s International Women’s Poetry and Arts Festival and was on a panel that centered on transnational responses to injustice as part of Vivid Ideas Sydney in 2016.

As a true creative and captivating performer who bares her soul, Zeadala is steadily making a name for herself in Sydney’s art scene. She’s performed at The Plot Festival amongst the likes of Tash Saltana and Thelma Plum in both 2016 and 2017 and supported Butter Fingers, Atmosphere and Brother Ali for Sarah Connor at their Sydney shows at Hudson Ballroom and Metro Theatre. Zeadala recently performed at Groovin the Moo Festival in Maitland where she supported DOBBY and is currently working on various projects to be released in 2020. Her Debut EP is set to be released on October 10th, 2020.
