Australian Music Producer, Kalya (Ka –lee- yah) Scintilla ( Sin–till –ah) has always had a love for music; playing in garage bands, banging on drum kits, spinning vinyl in the night clubs of Sydney and getting down to funk! Kalya had a knowing one night listening to one of the most profound pieces of visionary music from the legendary Herbie Hancock, that his soul’s mission was to make music his life’s devotion. Soon after this experience he enrolled himself into a two year audio engineering course and eventually left the city to work on music in the country deep into nature. Taking on small part time jobs to get him by, he made his sole focus and time dedicated to honing his craft. He signed on with Zenon records in 2009 putting him on the map inside the psy-trance world with his first project, Merkaba. His second project, Kalya Scintilla made it to the top ten in additech.com charts in the same year and by 2011 he was touring the U.S. west coast. Kalya Scintilla took hold in the United States as dance floors were all a buzz about the masterful style in which Kalya was throwing down squelchy funky grooves that were uniquely deep and hypnotic.

Eve is an American multi-ethnic , multi cultural story weaver who has loved sharing her passions with the world via Theatre. In a modern western world devoid of cultural connection and narrative she has always dedicated her work to engaging audiences into remembering their innate connection to the ancients. Eve’s extensive background in theatre began as a child, eventually graduating with a bachelor of fine arts degree, to producing & directing productions of her own. Several years of training with professionals in this field, Eve was initiated into the power of learning classical theatre and how these classics would inform the genres she would be drawn to such as Performance Art and eventually Ritual Theatre. Also trained in various styles of theatre from around the planet, Eve's passion would ignite a love affair in continuing to study non western theatre and look to obscure cultures for inspiration who still to this day have a very strong reverence for performance and honor it as a way of communing with the unseen. Upon arriving to the west coast from the midwest, she quickly began to create productions to highlight the esoteric and connected with the needs of an emerging subculture looking to learn and embody ancient wisdoms of our ancestors. Evokation Sacred Art , the collective theatre troupe once named Soulvoice Sacred Art, stage productions were often seen at gatherings in Southern California from 2009-2012. These productions involved the study and embodiment of the ancient archetypes inside a very real practice of ritual theatre that came to life in an unexpected way. From 2012 to 2016, Eve had no choice but to reduce this troupe to a one woman show in order to enter the full-time lifestyle of global touring with Kalya. In 2017 the long awaited opportunity to resurrect her beloved vision for a full sized theatre troupe will be born once again as Evokation will debut with Kalya Scintilla on several stages across the US festival circuit.
