In affiliation with Fruitmarket, Be United Presents: Sunset Soirée is a stunning visual and musical experience which introduces the next wave of emerging diverse Scottish artists. 

Sunset Soirée serves as the culmination event for Be United’s Producing the Future programme, where aspiring event producers, aged 18-25, hone their skills in event management by organising a spectacular Be United Presents event at Fruitmarket, Edinburgh.

The event line-up, presented by the young event organisers with the support of Be United, includes extraordinary visual artists and two incredible Black music artists that are set to bring the audience an unforgettable evening of immersive experiences.

Eyve’s music is a unique blend of hip hop, trap, jazz, and her African roots. She is committed to bringing authenticity and realness to her craft. Eyve writes songs based on her own life experiences, social and political issues. She is a passionate advocate for gender equality and inclusivity, particularly for women and non-binary individuals.

Viv Latifa is a singer-songwriter, dancer, and actress from Togo and Italy, based in Edinburgh. Over the past few years, she has made her mark on the Scottish music scene, collaborating with notable producers, sound engineers, instrumentalists, and other artists.

The Sunset Soirée will also feature three visual artists. Gianni Esporas, currently based in Glasgow, challenges colonial hierarchies through her use of hair as an abject material. Her work, ‘A Report on Spores’ (2023), utilises archival footage to explore speculative narration. Aurelie Chan Hon Sen, a Glasgow-based creative practitioner and PTF participant, explores decolonising strategies through embodied forms of knowledge and language hybridity. Her work ‘Home In A Foreign Place’ (2020) engages with diasporic experiences through video. Thi Aalma, known for her interdisciplinary practice as an Indian-born artist and poet, presents ‘The Wishing Tree’ (2024), a mixed-media installation exploring themes of resilience and hope.
