Sydney Leigh aka “DJ Empress Medea” originally from Los Angeles. Since 1998 was a DJ of the underground music scene, playing events such as Moontribe, Integral Gathering, Burning Man and many other alternative events. She has played alongside many artists and opened for the hip hop group The Pharcyde, Bass Nectar and Dj Dragonfly to name a few. She has toured for many years on the west coast, Hawaii and Australia Djing festivals.
She is excited to make a comeback on the decks this year with a tour lifting off on the Hawaiian islands, and the west coast. Activating sacred space for all those in need of healing thru dance. Music and dance becomes the medicine to digest the process of transformation during these potent times.
Over the years she has been dedicated to offering the prayers to the lands thru the music. While living in Maui, Hawaii for many years she produced multiple events at the Uma Temple in Kipahulu for retreats, Ecstatic Dances & Full moon dance gatherings to bridge community in ceremony.
Her music & events are woven with the intention of finding the inner connection to the Self as an embodied prayer through dance that heals & fills the lands for collective healing. Her music weaves live Indian vocals, global sounds and heavy basslines.
