"a honeyed vocal style that belies the weight of her subject matter: war, freedom, social change."
Village Voice

"Delawari's songwriting chops and indie pop are on full display." Pure Volume


Musician, filmmaker, and activist Ariana Delawari has released her double albumEntelechy I & II today and shared tracks “The Wonderment” via SPIN’s Pure Volumeand “The Warrior” via Northern TransmissionsEntelechy, meaning fulfilling one’s potential in Greek, is Delawari’s second full length. Entelechy I was produced by Butchy Fuego (a.k.a. Electronic artist San Gabriel) and Entelechy II is the same collection of tracks presented as acoustic and unproduced featuring Salar Nader - a fellow Afghan-American and a famed virtuoso of the tabla.
 
Delawari’s voice offers a golden mean between Joan Baez’s warm soprano and Kate Bush’s intoxicating, otherworldly vocals and permeates the idea of fulfillment throughout the album’s entirety. One half of the double album conjures electronic soundscapes. The other is an earthier version of the same 11 songs. Unproduced, it’s a raw, radical rethinking of Entelechy I that pleasantly wafts between percussive waltzes and levitating tribal beats.
 
A fictional short film titled Entelechy was also released prior to the album’s debut. It serves as the visual manifestation of the album’s creative direction. The fictional short was written and directed by Delawari, produced by artist-curator Nicole Disson(Sleepover LA, THE SERIES), and follows Delawari thorugh a guided, shamanic dream-state. It’s a mystical musical that introduces the album’s themes of spirituality and self-discovery presented as a film about the state of the world, the destruction of the earth, and a dream of a brighter unified future.
 
Born and raised in Southern California, the multi-media artist boasts an impressive resume. Her psych-folk musical creations earned her a fan and collaborator in acclaimed director David Lynch. She is an award winning filmmaker for her feature length documentary about the making of her first album, Lion of Panjshir, in Afghanistan and her family story called We Came Home that was just acquired for distribution. And, she is an activist whose life’s passion culminated in a TED talk. Now she is taking another step forward with ENTELECHY.
