Singer Emma Zembyla - Interview for ORTHODOX ARTS FESTIVAL 2022

Emma's married surname is Zembyla, and she has lived in Cyprus with her husband for the past two years, although being originally from England.
She was born into a musical family.
Her studies included music, poetry, and theatre.
In 2019, she released her debut album of music under her maiden surname, Hetherington.
She is a boundless talent with an inspired voice.

She was encouraged by a close friend and guide in her church to begin making original songs in the English language, with Orthodox Christian-sourced words and/or Orthodox Christian spiritual ethos, but which could be widely accessible, and hopefully consoling in these times, by people's prayers. She wrote the music for the majority of the songs, and for a few she made arrangements using pre-existing melodies.

She is currently working on a new set of original songs. This is our Interview.
