The Journey Of A Digital Migrant - Lulu Mebrahtu
Music is a universal language. Especially, in conflict. TEDxTeen opening music by Madijuwon.
Sub-Saharan Eritrean by way of London, Lula is a creative enigma, who is carving out a career for herself as a multidisciplinary artist. This approach has led Lula to garner support and success across multiple fields as an actor, singer/songwriter/sound designer, presenter and a MiMu Glover.
An unconventional thinker using technology as her enabler, Lula is breaking through “the norm” and liberating artistic expression as a sensory experience. As a vanguard, Lula’s personal project is an immersive live performance within an audio/visual installation that takes you on a journey of illegal migration.
“Stories dictate the medium through which they are best told.”
Using her voice to liberate truth and facilitate transcendence, Lula sings about a lived experience of the past, present and future. Her soulful tromba, which carries the weight of her heritage, enables intergalactic travel. With the support of cutting edge technology, MiMu Gloves, she makes levitation through sound waves possible.
Having received a Dance & Drama award to study Musical Theatre, equipped with a previous degree in psychology for which she says “belongs to my mother,” she is trained to be a triple threat, and is transforming into so much more.
