Experimental pop auteur, Sasha Perera aka Perera Elsewhere is a producer, songwriter and DJ who has garnered critical acclaim from Pitchfork, NPR, FADER, Vogue, KCRW, and more.Her use of technology to create and to experiment with her voice, lyrics, percussive beats, deep bass frequencies and sound design to explore the human experience, all led to the ‘Doom-Folk’ coined sound of the Perera Elsewhere project, where she found a home on LA label Friends of Friends, releasing two widely-acclaimed albums.
Elsewhere, but always rooted. No matter where Perera has found herself musically– from live shows & DJ sets at institutions such as Berghain, the Guggenheim, the Hamburg Philharmonic, Mutek Festival, or music licensed for Ava Du Vernay’s ‘Queen Sugar’ or by Oscar winning director Paolo Sorrentino – she has constructed a creative habitat and welcomed others to it. A true multi-hyphenate, Perera’s open and autodidact technique is also highlighted by a long list of collaborations, composing music for moving image, art installations & dance. She has recently even been sought after by German icon Nina Hagen to produce songs for her upcoming album.
