Urarii started playing the guitare/ukulele and dancing at a young age. Her dad was a party aficionado, when there was a tahitian « bringue » there was Charles Berselli around with his kids. He would rapidly teach Urarii and her brother, Faratea, how to play the guitare. She also got enrolled in Makau’s Dance School where she learned how to dance « ori tahiti » (: tahitian dancing) at age 5. Since then she had participated to countless festivals, as far as she could remember she had always danced. Music and dancing were healthy supports she enjoyed all throughout her life.
This artistic background was a major asset while she was working on the Paul Gauguin Cruise ship, as a Polynesian Ambassador. She perfected her voice, there, with a mentor she thought inspiring, Hinagnaro, an author/composer/singer and beautiful dancer all at the same time. This five years working experience helped her to expand her range of musical competence and to quench her thirst for discovery.
In some aspect of her life, Urarii reminds us of the Goddess Hina, representing the feminine power of determination and conviction.
After years of exploration, she had decided to settle down with her partner in life and start a family. She took on a series of odd jobs prior to going back to University where she graduated in Foreign Languages with honors, and had a Master in Languages Cultures and Societies in Oceania. Diplomas helped her to contract a job as an English teacher. After two years of teaching she completed the CAPES with success, with nearly a new born baby in her arms.
When Urarii embarked on « Eimeo adventure » she was already a full-fledged artist in her private sphere, it was just matter of time before she would set the Tahitian’s scenes on fire! But Moehau, Eimeo’s founder and designer, came in the way, and swept her up in the fast pace of her overflowing creativity.
One Friday of January 2021 Urarii, Moehau and Hinatea Boosie, Eimeo muse and art director, were celebrating pleasures of life and friendship, a yearly ritual filled with exuberant songs and vivid dancings.
