Globetrotting singer/producer Yasmine Dubois has only been making music as Lafawndah for a short time, but already she’s causing ripples worldwide with her futuristic take on global electronic music. After packing in her jobs as a gallery curator in Mexico City (where she also played drums in the all female band Nidadaand New York), the half-Iranian, half-Egyptian musician moved back to Paris, after previously having studied at La Sorbonne, to concentrate on honing her “ritual club music,” influenced by Nina Simone, Grace Jones, Missy Elliot, Kate Bush, traditional Middle Eastern singers, dancehall queens and the Night Slugs label’s modernist take on grime and bass.
