Uma’s work is written and performed at Can Obert, her home-come-music-residency that has seen over twenty-five young artists pass through including Alice Bloomfield, Max Pope, Amy May Ellis and Nilüfer Yanya. The residency has become a hotbed of creativity and collaboration, producing over twenty songs in a week. Uma continues to experiment with her sound, playing with space, electronics, and styles from bossa nova right through to pop.
