About Us

Biiah is a platform that supports community development through singing.

Our Why

Biiah recognises that singing is a universally occurring human experience – an innate expression that connects us, regulating body and mind. As we build a global community that centres singing for wellbeing, we are continually innovating new ways to empower groups and individuals to connect with the power of their voice on a daily basis.

We’re committed to making singing with others inclusive, accessible and delightful - a future where every single person on the planet has access to making music.


Who is Biiah?

[bɪa] noun
“Bia” in Greek mythology is the goddess of power, force, and strength.

Here at Biiah we believe in the untapped power of the human spirit. It is through music that it can be used as a force for good. 

Our products and programmes build personal strength and resilient communities by encouraging the exploration of making sound.

Making music is an intrinsic part of the human experience and so it is our mission to empower millions to take better control of their health and improve their quality of life through music.
