Born in Tehran and raised in Paris, the New York-based singer and producer LAFAWNDAH cut her musical teeth as a member of Nidada, an all-girl group she founded with friends in Mexico City in 2011. She has been performing solo since late 2012 including stints during Art Basel Miami Beach, Glenn O'Brien's recent TV Party revival and LA's infamous Mustache Monday. LAFAWNDAH'S vocal stylings invite comparison to the beauty and seduction of Sade while the confidence, empowered sexuality and self-granted freedom evoke the energy of Grace Jones. While these references come to mind, LAFAWNDAH has staged an entirely new musical landscape to explore.
