Wafia’s elegant, vaporous voice is as penetrating as a diamond bullet. Her songs have found champions in music heavyweights like Pharrell and collaborators like Ben Abraham, Finneas and Tak-ku. Her tracks, like “Bodies” and “Only Love” from her forthcoming VIII EP, are dance floor siren songs. It’s big pop: triumphant, thunderous and crystalline. But dare to dig a touch deeper and one will find something more sweeping. Wafia, born Wafia Al Rikabi and of Iraqi and Syrian heritage, has personally felt the political tensions of our modern era. She brings it all to the fore in her powerful, boundless music.
