Debut Album is Out!

“Her music, at times, borders on the avant garde, making it startling and full of surprises.”

Marvin Glenn, Ezra magazine Ausralia

“In [Illay’s] complex compositions and forthright lyrics, she unfolds a parallel world in which one can laugh without forgetting to weep - and vice versa.”

TAZ Magazine, Germany



ILLAY is Originally from Tel Aviv, she has been based in Berlin since 2013. Her multi- cultural upbringing by a Libyan-Jewish mother and an Australian-German father helped shape her appreciation for a variety of music. After discovering her love of the cello as child, she continued to experiment with her musical style, incorporating different genres and an ever-widening range of instruments.

ILLAY's energetic personality and innovative style has led to her supporting German singer-songwriter Astrid North and forming and touring with the electroacoustic trio MOJOY. ILLAY also composes music for dance

performances and film soundtracks, including the

award-winning Israeli documentary Winding.
