Ivana Ray Singh: Solo project started in March 2017. She uses voice, synths, cassettes of found sounds and percussions to make music with lyrics that reflect on the themes of incommunication (both intra and inter-personal), foreignness and “the other”, isolation and belief as a tool for self-knowledge and growth.

Beat-driven noisy post-industrial electronics, guided by vocals that invoke one’s highest self in the face of adversity, while banishing that which doesn’t belong.
