avatar for Kelela


Kelela’s debut, Take Me Apart, spans the past and future of R&B while registering as an instant classic. With critical praise from The New York Times, Pitchfork (“Best New Music”), and a cover story for The FADER, Kelela’s time in the spotlight has only begun. Having already performed at The Hollywood Bowl with Solange, at massive festivals with the Gorillaz, and gone around the world with The xx, Kelela is now selling out her own headlining tour.

It was through an integral relationship with LA electronic collective Fade to Mind that Kelela developed her sonic approach, singing over experimental instrumentals thinking to herself, “Is there a place for a weird black girl in this music?” On her debut EP, Hallucinogen, she made that place, pulling the parts together under the umbrella of Kelela, incorporating different voices and inspirations, from Janet to Wiley, from Tamia to Aphex Twin.
