— Palestinian-born, Toronto-based multi disciplinary artist, Merna (formerly known as Ayah) blissfully spreads her wings in a space and time where evolution is imminent. After creating magical soundscapes with the likes of DJ Jazzy Jeff (Jill Scott) and James Poyser (The Roots), releasing her dynamic album The Calling featuring stellar production by Makai Black and executive producer Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest, Lucy Pearl), she brazenly forays into the world of art, production, and composition with her new self-produced offering, sans.
Impressively melding minimalistic sound design, striking chords, classic songwriting, and melodic elements of pop, soul, and classical, evolution never sounded so sweet. sans will be sure to poise Merna as a producer/writer to reckon with.
Most recently, Merna introduced audiences to the sans concept of quiet presence in order to make space for creation, the sans experience, via an interactive installation and live shows.
