In her latest release, Diza Guava unveils an intriguing blend of soul and hip-hop, echoing through her latest release and accompanying video. For those who’ve crossed paths with Diza Guava on this platform or elsewhere, her distinctive sound remains etched in memory.
In an era awash with clones, Diza Guava stands as a beacon of authenticity.
The 28 year old Swedish artist and producer weaves a tapestry of musical influences and conceptual art in her haunting and hypnotic new single, Fakta, a song delving into the realms of judgment and gossip.
Diza elaborates, “It’s a tendency we all share. We often find ourselves unable to perceive, hear, touch, or entirely grasp the whole truth. In these moments, we rely on shortcuts, deluding ourselves into thinking we possess the answers. This song serves as a call to action for my fellow human beings: let’s endeavour to communicate directly and validate our sources, resisting the snares of cognitive bias.”
“I had an underwater sensation, a fluid, swirling feeling, while creating this song. This feeling led me to draw inspiration from water for the ‘Fakta’ music video.”
With her music video (see top), Diza passionately conveys her plea for open-hearted communication, even showcasing her cello-playing prowess. The video creatively weaves a narrative between Diza and her enigmatic co-star, the captivating yet detached Maryam Missawi.
In the video, Diza’s unrelenting efforts to connect are portrayed, even when she remains invisible and unheard in her quest. However, as the narrative unfolds, a surprising twist offers a glimmer of hope for authentic and loving connections among people.
Diza’s visual storytelling mirrors the song’s powerful message, urging viewers to reexamine their prejudices and embrace candid and open dialogue.
In the realm of Swedish music, there is no one quite like Diza Guava, a distinctive artist who has found her niche. It’s this uniqueness that captivates us, and this, my friends, is an indisputable fact.
