Not one to be pigeon-holed, musician anaiis occupies the space between different styles, inspired by her nomadic upbringing.

anaiis is a French-Senegalese artist who grew up between continents, moving from Toulouse to Dublin and Dakar before settling in Oakland, California. She studied at Tisch School of Arts in New York before relocating to London to pursue her music career.

Her work is self-reflective and created in pursuit of a collective healing. Alongside her independent releases, she’s collaborated with artists such as JulianKnxx and Julien Creuzet, and commissioned work for renowned institutions such as White Cube Gallery, V&A museum, Camden Arts Centre, Palais de Tokyo, and more.

anaiis has been supported by Jerwood New Work Fund 2022 and Live Work Fund.
