Describing herself as a “Jazz meets Storytelling” experience, DYLEMA has dropped her dreamy debut single, Mine. The video stars Kikz Katika and Tania Chikaima, depicting stunning visuals of #WLW lust with the iconic backdrop of The Old Church in Stoke Newington, North London. Put simply: we’re obsessed.
DYLEMA leads eight-piece, The Dylema Collective. Their name is an acronym of mantra “Do You, Let Every Man Adapt”, and their music is self-described as “orgasmic, soul enriching experiences” designed for audiences across the UK and Europe. DYLEMA has an impressive portfolio, having performed on TED, BBC, BET and BBC Africa.
DYLEMA combines music with poetry, disrupting the relationships between mind, soul, and body. The feminist themes of her work explore race, gender, sex and individuality, and her piece on Black feminine empowerment, What If A Black Girl Knew, has surpassed the 200,000 mark on YouTube. Impressive!
Sound good? DYLEMA plays the Round Chapel in Clapton, East London on 30 October. With support from South London-based Elisa Imperilee, she will be joined by the Collective to create a dreamy evening of jazz. Get your tickets here, DIVAs.
