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’s debut cassette “Given Mortal Mission” is a post-post-modern electrical techno scream of anger and joy.

Raw psychedelic stream of consciousness set over buoyant drum machines— You’d be lucky to have Leyla Daze as your mushroom sherpa.
— Matthew Henderson, Xhurch Portland
Leyla Daze gives me hope in this nightmarish age because they hear what’s going on in our Dystopian reality and report it back with humor, wild sounds and an electronic heartbeat.
— Ted Quinn, Joshua Tree

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).
