Lafawndah is the music project of performer, musician, and filmmaker Yasmine Dubois. Combining rich songwriting and rapturous vocal delivery with an ability to distill and transpose her heritage and identity, the Egyptian-Iranian performer incorporates moods and motifs that are at once intimate and deceptive, sensual and unsettling, into a global pop fantasy. Performing a range of material including songs from her latest EP Tan released on the canonical electronic label Warp, Lafawndah will bring the festival to a close with a riveting performance.
Performance followed by a DJ set with Chippy Nonstop
