Aïsha Devi


No one on this planet sounds like Aïsha Devi. Born next to the Swiss Alps and of Nepalese-Tibetan descent, she has forged a heterogeneous identity that guides her personal and creative process. Her voice is her most powerful tool in a repertoire that includes pounding rhythms and rave stabs, angelic and guttural chants, mystical linguistics and worldly sound. 

In 2013 she co-founded Danse Noire, a collective and label that supports rebellious club music around the world. She released her first EPs on the label in 2014, giving context to her universe alongside artists such as Ruhail Qaisar, Yikii and J.G. Biberkopf. Houndstooth released her debut album, Of Matter And Spirit (2015), a significant sonic statement that is rich in political and philosophical subtext. Her second album, DNA Feelings (2018), is her most accomplished statement, on which she addresses how music can alter the fundamental vibrations of our material world and the very essence of our being.

With her hypnotic digital worldbuilding and magnetic stage presence, Devi already captivated us at our 2018 edition. Her audiovisual live performance at MIRA 2023 will feature new material incorporating international high-intensity dancefloor styles with her signature transcendent synths and vocals.
