A melting pot of pop tunes and beats, bits of glamour and some punk attitude.
That's the sound universe of Nadia Tehran.
She's a living contrast.
She is the Muslim in the Christian city, the foreigner in the Swedish class community and the Swedish one in the Iranian family.
From a young age, Nadia Tehran found music. It became her way of reflecting on the feeling of not belonging anywhere.
She fronted various punk bands as well as the Middle Eastern group Compadre who had a penchant for heavy bass and who performed at Roskilde Festival in 2013.
Nadia Tehran released her solo album Dozakh: All Lovers Hell in 2019. The album received international praise for its bold artistic expression.
There is a power and a charisma in her live performances. You can experience this for yourself at Summer Days when Nadia Tehran builds a soundtrack for her longing for identity, for the intersection of life and death and for her inner demons.
Nadia Tehran performs at Summer Days on 3 July alongside Tessa and Larry 44.
