Born in Japan and raised in London, Rina Sawayama is a singer, composer, model and actress with a degree in political science. So good was her 2001 debut LP that the eligibility criteria for the Mercury Prize were expanded to include UK residents, not just citizens. And her songs are so inspiring that Elton John joined Rina to rerecord her single “Chosen Family,” and she landed an invitation to contribute a celebrity homage to The Metallica Blacklist. Her style is so extraordinary and eclectic that you’ll hear dulcet r’n’b, fierce nu-metal, and hypnotic electro-pop—all in the space of a single track. A perfect fit for the OFF Festival.
