Hypnotising the world with her debut LP ISON earlier in the year, Iranian-Dutch Sevdaliza will be touring Australia for the first time come January 2018. Thanks to Paradise and Mellum—together with Collarts, FBi and i-D AUNZ—the tour has been hailed as one of the most anticipated debuts of early 2018, and will span across Sugar Mountain Festival (Melbourne) and Mofo Festival (Hobart), as well as two headline shows in Sydney (Oxford Art Factory) and Brisbane (Woolly Mammoth Alehouse).
A multi-platform artist, Sevdaliza is known for her boundary-pushing performances—her emotionally charged audiovisual experiences spanning across minimalist trip-hop and industrialised RnB. Putting her whole self into her work, she has earned fans at The Fader, Paper Magazine, FACT Magazine, BBC and Dazed Digital (Dazed 100), and also in peers like A$AP Ferg.
Thanks to Paradise and Mellum, we will be sending one student to join the Sevdaliza touring team, working alongside the crew to gain industry-recognised experience. Are you studying at Collarts and are interested in applying? Check your student emails for application openings and watch this space for future updates.
