It takes a lot of guts to come out of nowhere and drop an EP that immediately grabs the attention of platforms like Mad Decent, Tropicalbass.com, Neptunes and 22tracks London but that seems to be exactly what ZANILLYA has managed to achieve. This expressive young artist has already premiered her new Single “Wha ya want” on Noisey produced by THEprinceOFbeatz. She recently has a fresh new song out on Buraka Som Sistema's label 'Enchufada' ft the innovative Castro listen to it on her soundcloud.
Zanillya is a vocalist based in Amsterdam. Born in Hannover Germany; to an Aruban father and a Macedonian mother. Her love for music has been given to her since birth by her artistic mother and musical father, also known as the late Bobby Farrell from the group Boney M.
In 2011 she became the first female MC to win Holland’s biggest live performance contest “De Grote Prijs van Nederland” in the category best Hip Hop. She has performed at Noorderslag Eurosonic and was chosen by FHM magazine as 1 of 500 most beautiful women in The Netherlands.
Constantly changing and inventing her style, she uses her interest in a wide field of genres to make what she calls ‘Caribbean Grunge’. Tropical influences, bass-oriented songs that fuse dancehall, electronica, lo-fi and hip-hop with the attitude of grunge.
Zanillya is currently working towards her second EP, which she will release in 2015.
