A Dutch multi-genre music diva of Iranian origin, Sevdaliza, comes straight from the Berlin Music Video Awards to the Serbian National Theatre, where she will give an exclusive, spectacular audio-visual performance at Doček 7531, on 13 January at 22 p.m.! The authentic experimental artist who resists being classified into genres brings us a now-or-never kind of experience.

Sevda Alizadeh, known professionally as Sevdaliza, is an Iranian-Dutch singer and songwriter. Born in Iran and based in Rotterdam, she was originally a professional basketball player before embarking upon a music career.

Her music has been described as a fusion of trip-hop, experimental pop, and alternative R&B while incorporating influences from various other sources. Sevdaliza herself describes her music as ’raw, strong, and vulnerable’. Her visually sophisticated music videos caught the attention of many international blogs and magazines, with Complex nominating her video for ‘Sirens of the Caspian’ as a top ten video of the year in 2014.

Her debut EP ‘The Suspended Kid’ was released in January 2015. It was followed by a collaboration with the art duo Pussykrew which resulted in a music video for the album ‘That Other Girl’. She was also featured on Paris-based producer Stwo’s track ‘Haunted’, providing vocals. ‘Children of Silk’, her second EP, was self-released in 2015 on Twisted Elegance. It is characterised by a more conceptual approach and darker undertones of self-reflection. A music video for ‘Marilyn Monroe’ was released in March 2016, directed by Hirad Sab. It received critical acclaim and was featured in various ‘best of’ lists, including a year-end ranking by FACT magazine.

Her debut full-length album, entitled ‘ISON’, was released in 2017. It includes 16 tracks, among which earlier releases such as ‘Marilyn Monroe’ and ‘Amandine Insensible’, as well as new songs. The album cover features an image of a hyper realistic sculpture of Sevdaliza by artist Sarah Sitkin.

She co-directed and starred in a short film, called ‘The Formula’, which was released through Noisey, featuring a soundtrack by Sevdaliza.
