Estère, aka Empress of Electric Blue WitchHop, is one of New Zealand's finest acts and best kept secrets, opening for the likes of soul legends Grace Jones and Erykah Badu.
With a flair for exploring uninhabited and stunning sonic terrain, the captivating performer weaves her velvety vocals, heavy basslines and hooks into a transfixing new performance concept.
Into the Belly of Capricorn braids immersive stagecraft with a powerhouse band into a contemporary show unlike anything else. Inspired by metamorphosis and the rich territory of mythology, Estère’s uniquely theatrical vision is shaped by award-winning director Sara Brodie, incorporating storytelling, dance and fibre optics to create a truly luxurious experience.
“A uniquely talented musical artiste. Estère’s songs are both refreshingly quirky and playfully soulful.” – Radio 13
