Montreux Jazz Festival, Montreux
Sevdaliza is an autodidactic singer, songwriter, visual artist and composer/producer. Her creations contrast husky vocals with heavy basslines creating a mood that screams of temptation. Born in Iran and residing in the Netherlands, the 27-year-old has made quite a name of herself. Sevdaliza is a very passionate artist with a demanding vision in imagery/sound and an academic background in communication.
Over the years, she realized she wanted to spread her vision through multiple formats. The intention was always present but it just needed a form. Sevdaliza plays with thesimulation of identities and fantasies that can hardly be distinguished from reality. Creating a world where everything is possible. When the intention is clear, the melodies flow.
To Sevdaliza, expression also comes forward in designing every detail in sound and imagery. The music is charged with obscure energy and an enormous amount of dynamics. It portrays a porcelain yet deep fullness. Within two years she has managed to launch an international music career. In 2015 several international gatekeepers appointed her as notable talent.
