Producer, DJ and performer Liliane Chlela is widely known in electronic and experimental scenes for her unique and audacious approach to sound, stirring audiences into pushing the limits of their auditory experiences ever further. Through her signature techniques, she explores the relationships between improvisation and the manipulation of sounds from wide-ranging musical genres.

With three self-produced albums already under her belt, Chlela’s latest album Safala blends field recordings, personal memories and incantations with pioneering and disruptive sounds; she notably premiered it to great acclaim at Tusk Festival in the UK. A propensity for transdisciplinary research led her to develop her audiovisual skills and apply them to a wide variety of fields, including fashion films, interactive installations and performance art. Boasting a decidedly diverse and adventurous sound palette, the Lebanese-born and Montréal-based artist is now lauded as of the most multifaceted female producer/musician across the Middle-East, West Asia and North Africa.
