Soothing song-bird and world-rhythm-connector, Lucida, draws from her Polynesian heritage and original artistry as a drummer and dance. With many years as a musician/entertainer, she plays a large variety of cover songs to suit all occasions, from soaring ballads to skanking reggae and funky pop tunes.

Lucida's voice is a healing balm for the world, offering celebration and comfort for our triumphs and struggles. She is music in motion, her infectious grooving and spirited playful presence, naturally relaxes and engages people building a synergy between artist and audience.

'Sister Liberty' is her original music and band of major league musicians and vocalists, weaving a mix of soulful reggae, funk and folk with world music flavours. Her debut album Emanate is a reggae roots groove vibration, highlighted with luscious harmonies and quirky percussion instruments. It is a classic example of just how she loves to make a joyful noise, sweet as nectar.
