Leyla is an alien entity sent from the future to sing & keep the beat. With dance-banger drums, massive vocal landscapes and kaleidoscopic video, Leyla creates sensory portals which dunk participants in the slime of the present moment.
Circling musical base camps in Joshua Tree, CA & Boulder, CO, Leyla's work has been featured in museums, film festivals, and print publications internationally. Recent performances include Eminent Domain in NYC's Chelsea district and a tour kickoff show for Adult Swim’s David Liebe Hart.
Leyla has performed alongside ULTRACULTURAL OTHERS (Go! Push Pops), Phoxxii, Xibling, FingerPRiNCE, Magisterial, and Adult Swim’s David Liebe Hart.
Their work explodes the boundaries of traditional formats with a unique blend of music and interactive installation. They are currently in residence at madelife (Boulder, CO) developing TOYBOX, a solo installation show & music performance. Notable past venues include Fondazione Prada (Milan), Portland Art Museum, Disjecta (Portland), and The New Museum (New York).
