Manizha is a groundbreaking Tajik-born Russian artist with almost 20 years performance experience.


Her genre-busting art pop style breaks boundaries, uniting audiences with driving beats, folk-inspired rhythms and soaring melodies.

Expect electro, synth and post-punk inspired tracks, all combined with traditional soundscapes and folklore-led melodies which take the audience to another world - a world of freedom, equality and empowerment.

Manizha delivers bold messages through her music and doesn’t back down from her truth, even in the face of adversity.

As part of her truth, Manizha pioneered a campaign against domestic violence with her mother in 2019, launching the remarkable app Silsila, which has extended its services to help female refugees and migrants throughout 2021.

She is also a staunch supporter of LGBT+ rights and was named as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in 2020.
