About Aya Metwalli:
Aya Metwalli is an Egyptian singer/songwriter, composer and producer. She started off by writing songs on an acoustic guitar. After studying music production in 2015, she delved into sonic experimentation and introduced electronics and heavy sound modulation to her work. She self-released her debut EP “Beitak” toward the end of 2016 and has been revamping her sound and developing her modus operandi since. Lately, she has been making way for the vocal influences of all the Egyptian pop and classics she listened to growing up to leak out of her subconsciousness and find their way onto a bedding course of what she calls “strange distorted sounds coming out of synthesizers and drum machines”. She defines her music as avant pop or estranged-pop.
