NAVA formed in Milan in 2016. Originally from Iran, singer Nava Golchini met producer & arranger Francesco Fugazza whilst studying music in Italy. The collaboration then expanded to include drummers Elia Pastori and Marco Fugazza. Talking cues from Italy’s current flourishing electronic music scene and international acts like Arca, Apparat, Purity Ring, etc, NAVA are a real cultural blender, melding Golchini’s own Persian musical background and the band’s experimental arrangements into something truly cosmopolitan and visceral. Their debut songs “Ritual” and “Navigate,” released originally on Italian indie label Factory Flaws, garnered attention from The Line of Best Fit, Rolling Stone Italy, Earmilk, Red Bull and more.
The quartet are currently working on their debut EP, to be released with Nettwerk Music Group sometime in 2019.
