SEVDALIZA

Sevdaliza (Teheran, Iran) is an autodidactic singer, songwriter, director and composer. Her creations contrast husky vocals with cutting strings and bass lines setting an enigmatic mood. Sevdaliza’s melancholic visceral voice floats over beds of thumping triphop dubs, married with classical harmonies. Rhythmic tensions build slowly into chaotic climaxes. Her work has been described as "genre-bending", drawing on various genres including electronic, punk, triphop, grime and the avant-garde.
