Harpist Marilu Donovan and violinist/vocalist Adam Markiewicz are NYC-based duo LEYA. LEYA works with and against the grain of tradition, mining intensity though alternate tunings, strange harmonies, and dreamstate operatic vocals. The resulting experience is one of beauty, but spans many imperfect worlds. LEYA has released a steady volume of work in several years. Their two albums via NNA Tapes, The Fool (2018) and its critically acclaimed follow-up Flood Dream (2020), exist alongside a wide range of collaborations. In 2018, the group wrote and performed a full-length soundtrack to I Love You, an erotic film directed by Brooke Candy and produced by PornHub that also features the duo as actors. 2019’s Angel Lust, a collaborative EP with Eartheater, followed courtesy of experimental label PAN.
During Rewire 2022, LEYA will also perform alongside Eartheater.
