An international star with a global message, Layla Kardan marries her smoky soulful voice with pop, jazz, Middle Eastern and R&B rhythms and melodies for an evocative and achingly poignant sound.
With her music she aims to empower women around the globe having already escaped her musical cultural shackles. Kardan has received raving reviews from the likes of Harper’s Bazaar, Mojeh, Savoir Flair, and Emirates Woman magazine who honored Kardan as Emirates Woman Artist of the Year 2017.
Along with performing at GQ Middle East, Esquire Middle East and Harper’s Bazaar Arabia events, Layla Kardan has also performed at intimate brand events such Tory Burch’s SS19 dinner party, the Louis Vuitton Time Capsule launch event, Chopard Classic Rally Dubai, Womena launch of Womedia, Repossi, and Arwa Al Banawi’s AW17 Fashion Forward runway show.
The artist has also worked on campaigns with Louis Vuitton for Les Parfums, YSL Beauty for Tatouage Couture Metallic and NARS’s Climax Mascara. A philanthropist at heart, Kardan also worked with UNICEF MENA for ‘Break Their Fast’ Campaign in support of refugee children in the region during Ramadan.
