Born to Lebanese parents, Juliana draws on her mixed cultural upbringing to create her signature sound: an unlikely but mesmerising fusion of spoken word, otherworldly electronics, and haunting vocals. Juliana recently played the iconic Electric Ballroom in Camden, London.
In 2019, Juliana was shortlisted for the Arab British Centre’s Award for Culture. That same year, she headlined Liverpool Arab Arts Festival (at the Royal Court, Liverpool) and Shubbak Festival (at the National Theatre, London), as well as playing a double bill show with Sudanese American artist AlSarah And The Nubatones (ULU, London). Juliana is a recipient of PRS Foundation’s Women Make Music Award for her debut album, SUNGOD, released in March 2018. Juliana is currently in pre-production for two upcoming music videos and is writing new material and preparing for her 2021 shows.
Juliana Yazbeck’s debut record SUNGOD is a political and spiritual cry; a journey of celebrating our pre-Westernised identities. Unapologetic and raw, Juliana’s lyrics challenge the effects of colonisation on cultural identities, the current state of love & relationships and gender inequality.
