Oh boy do we have an amazing talent for you today, she is from the Netherlands and at times she has a touch of that other fabulous Dutch singer Wende Snijders. But she is unique to herself.
Sevda Alizadeh, better known by her stage name Sevdaliza , is an Iranian-Dutch alternative R&B singer/songwriter.
Sevdaliza was born in Iran, but she moved with her family to the Netherlands when she was sixteen on a basketball scholarship, eventually playing on the Dutch national basketball team. She went to university, graduating with a master’s degree in communications.
She is renowned for her musical career, specially collaborating with Rotterdam-based producer Mucky. She released two extended plays The Suspended Kid and Children of Silk in 2015. Her debut album is scheduled to be released this year.
There is so much good stuff in her catalog that I have to take you on a little tour through her music. And this is going to be a treat for all.
First up we have a very striking and stylized video for an awesome song.
Sevdaliza is singing this for us all. Totally the bomb.

Another beautiful dramatic video for an equally dramatic song.
The contrast of that deep bass beat and Sevdaliza’s soaring beautiful vocalizing is unique and awesome.

Where has this lady been all my life? She makes the kind of music I could live with forever, and her videos are a thing of beauty. The music is so different from practically everything else out there.

And the gifts just keep coming, another artful video with a cool car and a beautiful lady.
Not to be confused with Backstreet Luv (Curved Air) this is one cool tune with some heavy beats and again the awesome voice of Sevdaliza. I believe we have finally found a replacement for Donna Summer in the sexy songs stakes.

Sevdaliza sounds more vulnerable here than on any other track I’ve heard so far. But don’t be that other girl, we love you just as you are. Another beautifully crafted video.

Wow! No two videos the same, not even close. Another great track from Sevdaliza, plenty of deep bass and sparkly musical sprinkles in this one. Plus that hypnotic voice. We won’t cry.

“and when you’re in need of sight to survive. remember, it was you who broke the glasses, blinded by rage.”
Very cryptic, very deep. Another brilliant song / video from Sevdaliza.

Finally today I’m gonna leave you with a true experience. Here’s Sevdaliza live at Best Kept Secret 2016 which is a music festival in the Netherlands. And just FYI Best Kept Secret 2017 is already sold out.
Such pure beautiful vocals.
