LEILA ABDUL RAUF exclusive interview

On the eve of her much anticipated appearance at the Northwest Terror Fest, LEILA ABDUL-RAUF sat down for a wide ranging discussion, covering her appearance at the Northwest Terror Fest, the process that is creating her art in its various forms, recent album Phantasiai , {which includes weaving layered textures into drifting filmic compositions, the album conjures dreamlike, ambient hymns while channeling ethereal melancholy. Far more brooding than prior solo outings, with a deep sense of romanticism and dark classical inspiration, Phantasiai showcases another new direction of exploration} of this vastly prolific musician and has received popular accolades across the board and is finally available on vinyl. What’s next for the multi-faceted artist? See for yourself. Thanks to David Brenner – Earsplit  for help putting this together.
