ILA is the moniker of the 22 years old singer-songwriter Ilayda Cicek. Her music is characterised by her unique voice and unadulterated emotions which unmask the inconsistencies of life. Expect a wayward, tender and honest artist accompanied by Cas Kinnaer (drums) and Sam Smeets (guitar).
Her debut EP 'Ila', containing 4 live-recorded songs, was released in February 2018 and her second EP 'Montage' is ready to be released in the autumn of 2019. She was runner-up in the 2017 Limbomania competition and was selected for Humo's Rock Rally and Studio Brussel's De Nieuwe Lichting. She's artist in residence at Muziekodroom in Hasselt.
