Beldina Odenyo AKA Heir of the Cursed (b 1990, Kenya) is a vocalist, guitarist, poet and writer creating work between the fields of music and theatre. Her work attempts to explore the differences and kinship between her dual Kenyan and Scottish heritage through words, music and visual art. Under her other-worldly moniker Heir of the Cursed, Odenyo is utterly transfixing with her intricate guitar work and soulful, dreamy vocals traversing somewhere across the realms of jazz, blues and folk. She has performed headline slots in a variety of contexts and has also supported a range of other musicians. Spanning a wide range of theatrical and performance-based events, Odenyo has worked with artists and companies such as the National Theatre of Scotland, the Edinburgh International Book Festival and the Glasgow Women’s Library. In 2018, she was appointed one of the National Theatre of Scotland’s starter artists. Beldina lives in Paisley.
