Leila Bencharnia

Leila Bencharnia is a sound artist, acousmatic interpreter and musician based in Milan. Daughter of a traditional Moroccan musician, her passion for music begins in the western desert of Morocco where she grew up. For her sonic surroundings, she works with analogic material, such as tapes, vinyls, and synthesizers. Bencharnia uses the practice of listening as a modality of knowledge transmission. By doing so, her practice seeks to have an active role in the decolonizing of listening as a way to have a visible impact on social and political questions. Currently, Bencharnia works as a solo artist and is part of the Archive Ensemble.

As of: January 2024
