Formed in the cosmopolitan hotbed city of Milan in 2016, enigmatic Iranian 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. NAVA take cues from Italy’s current flourishing electronic music scene and international acts like Arca, Apparat and Purity Ring. They are a unique cultural blender, melding Golchini’s own Persian background and the band’s incisive, experimental arrangements, into something truly visceral, both musically and visually. Exhilarating songs such as “Ritual,” “Camera” and “Body” has seen them gain attention from The Line of Best Fit, Rolling Stone Italy, Earmilk, Clash, BBC 6 Music and more. The quartet released their debut Body via international label Nettwerk Records in 2019 to acclaim and saw them tour in Europe with Icelandic band Vök.

NAVA’s brand new EP, due in summer 2020, will see them explore the darker themes of human nature.
