Born in Hackney and raised in Tottenham, London, Zena Edwards was immersed in the fashion, music and heat of the mid 1970’s

“Music and the Spoken Word has saved me till now and I want to keep having fun, create, laugh, cry, learn and maybe save a few lives in the process. Music and spoken word honoured me with a whole new life.......”

Edwards has collaborated with international artists from South Africa, France, US and the UK.

“I ventured over the river to the Bug Bar, Souls of Black Folks and Armaghetto to discover my poetic roots in 1998 and its been no looking back ever since.”
