Wafia

Wafia

Wafia’s elegant, vaporous voice is as penetrating as a diamond bullet. Her songs havefound champions in music heavyweights like Pharrell and collaborators like Ben Abraham, Finneas. and Tak-ku. Her tracks, like “Bodies” and “Only Love” from herforthcoming VIII EP, are dance floor siren songs. It's big pop: triumphant, thunderous andcrystalline. But dare to dig a touch deeper and one will find something more sweeping.


Wafia, born Wafia Al Rikabi and of Iraqi and Syrian heritage, has personally felt the political tensions of our modern era. She brings it all to the fore in her powerful, boundless music.
