New York bred and New Orleans based, Sariyah Idan is an internationally touring independent artist, multi-instrumentalist, music producer, and educator. Jazz and folk trained, hip-hop educated, and influenced by both Latinx sounds and her Jewish roots, Ms. Idan has an “ability to seamlessly combine a wide variety of disparate styles and sonics into a memorable sound all her own”, (Darryl Sterdan ,Tinnitist.com). For her, honoring the sounds of both influences and ancestors is a form of cultural activism. Her lyrics weave “powerful, soulful, spirited songs filled with stories of struggle, love and social justice”. Following her EP Deeper Than Skin plus numerous guest features, she released her debut solo LP Breaking Shadows in 2019. The 17 track album addresses love, power, and shifting of toxic patriarchy from #MeToo to solidarity with Black Lives Matter; recorded in Los Angeles, Berlin, and Lisbon. She is currently in pre-production for two new recording projects.
