Through using her vocal ability as a sort of spiritual practice, Raphaela Gilla creates music that transcends the mundane of everyday life. Born and raised in Israel but now based in London and Berlin, Raphaela’s multi-cultural heritage and upbringing inspire her faith and in turn, her music.

Raphaela’s vocal style covers quite the range of practice, from ritualistic shaman to soaring melodies. Her latest single, “Star Song,” is the first off of her upcoming album Ancient Angel. This track pulls the listener in and upwards as she sings of the warmth that she feels in the presence of unconditional love. Her vocals rise angelically over the top of an atmosphere of ambient electronic sound and gentle single-head drumming.
