Based in Berlin and born elsewhere, Arya Zappa is a multidisciplinary artist with an unusual voice.
Growing up through destruction, the act of creation was her first language. Playtime was seen as a chance to build up and then breakdown; her toys, her environment and finally herself. From the age of 7, she had already sculpted two separate lives, the world around her and the world of ideas.
For Arya Zappa, the act of making music is more important than most. It’s easy to trivialize the power of personal expression because many artists do. For Zappa though her approach is almost ancient, treating sound as a guide and a healer.
Zappa’s music is charged with a darkly erotic pulse that invites the listener to reconnect to their deeper parts of sensation.
