Extended Bio

Prior to writing Be as One”, Emma sang with a local Sheffield-based choir headed up by Head of Performing Arts & Choral Coordinator, Andrew Nimmo. She performed the lead in the opera, Brundibár, & appeared in several musicals at the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield, UK. Emma later received jazz vocal coaching from British singer/songwriter, Sally Doherty.

Between 2012 & 2016, Emma was one of the lead singers of Orquesta Estelar, one of the hottest Latin bands in London, UK:

Orquesta Estelar bring their energy & live brilliance to a range of gigs across the UK with a dazzling array of percussion, horns, flutes, guitars, vocals & strings.”

This spectacular Cuban Big Band includes over 25 members. Orquesta Estelar play all the Cuban classics, in a variety of venues, from upscale West End clubs (e.g Café de Paris), to diplomatic & cultural events.


Sara McGuinness & Elpidio Caicedo lead a stunning band line-up, setting the Festival stage alight with cha cha cha, son, mambo & Latin jazz, in original arrangements that showcase every instrument in the band.

Singing with Orquesta Estelar developed Emma as a performer, & gave her a deeper love & appreciation for Latin music.

Additionally, Emma lived in Santiago de Cuba, Cuba for 9 months, where she trained with the internationally acclaimed choir, Música Áurea. This was an incredible experience & further developed Emma’s understanding of how vocals can be used as a percussive instrument.


Furthermore, Emma spent 8 months between 2018 & 2019 living in Salvador, Brazil. As well as studying Afro-Brazilian dances, Emma took a series of percussive workshops led by the late world-renowned composer & conductor, Letieres Leite.

Inspired by locals rhythms, Emma wrote Saudade, Saudade Unplugged & Ontem in Brazilian Portuguese about past & current love, which were released in January & May 2021.
