Helen is a Nigerian-British singer-songwriter, composer, performer and workshop facilitator who explores the ethereal sounds of the ‘hang’, the power of the talking drum, and the quirks of children’s toys cross-fertilising multiple visual and musical styles. She has created music for Christian Dior, Sony Play Station, Disney, Oxfam, British Asian Trust (a personal charity for HRH Prince Charles), and her work has been featured on BBC, CNN, TVC News, The Guardian UK, Channel 4 UK, Reuters, France 24, Le Monde, and The Guardian Nigeria. She orchestrated the world’s first ever “hang flash gig” at the Lovebox festival in London and has played percussion with Sir Paul McCartney.
In 2008 Helen founded the ‘Just A Day’ initiative offering expressive arts workshops globally, using music and other art forms to engage, inspire, empower, heal and unite. In 2015 she wrote and composed the world's first pidgin (broken English) opera 'Song Queen: A Pidgin Opera' which debuted in London and has since been performed in Cape Town and Lagos, and will debut in New York in 2023.
In 2021 Helen produced ‘Sounds of Us - A Sound Art Snapshot: Life, Love, Fear, Hope & Protest in the Time of Pandemic Lockdown’ exploring every day and sacred sounds, forming part of a larger music-meets-tech project connecting people globally through shared sounds.
