Onyay began a 7 Year Quest called 33 Muses in 2005 when she started traveling to sacred sites opening up to the mysteries and frequencies beyond this world. At each site crowds gathered transfixed by her sound and she began understanding how to share these experiences through music and multi-media performance. Since 33 Muses’ inception, she has journeyed deep into the Amazonian Rainforest and ascended high into the Andes of Peru and Ecuador, exploredthe Mayan Ruins of Mexico, the Temples and Pyramids of Egypt, the Caves and Ruins of
Crete and Greece, the castles and mountains of Southern France, the temples and jungles of Bali
and Java as well as sacred and natural places in over 33 countries including Chile, Ireland, Indonesia, South Africa, India and New Zealand. Her process involves a receptivity and communication with the sounds and memories
held in these places, translating them through her voice and violin as a sonic shapeshifter, becoming more
human and more than human simultaneously.
Onyay’s otherworldly language and hypnotic melodies explore love, awakening, light, communion,
angelic realms, other dimensions, freedom, illusion, consciousness, the peaks, the valleys and
the journey of being human in a forever changing world.
