Ahya Simone

Ahya Simone is an eclectically elusive siren and multidisciplinary artist from Detroit. As a harpist, composer, and filmmaker, she traverses through the world of sound, moving image, and performance. Ever since she began singing in a church choir as a child, her passion for music has only grown when she was introduced to the harp as a teen. Drawing inspiration from her favorite contemporary artists, she began to mix R&B/soul, jazz, and experimental elements into her works and performances. These unique creations have allowed Ahya to collaborate with renowned artists such as Brian Jackson, Saul Williams, Shigeto, Kelela, Juliana Huxtable, as well as becoming a member of NYC based artist collective “Pique”.

Ahya Simone participates in "The Pleasure of Pain".
