Nalaya (Tenerife, 19 November 1983) is considered one of the greatest electronic music vocalists around today. Highly sought after in Ibiza (Spain) since the 2006, her style has influences of rhythm & blues, jazz, soul & Latin music. Composer-songwriter, her first hit was in 2008 at the SuperMartXé festive occasion, a dance theme that was broadcast on radio networks all around Europe & South America. In Spain she has attained three number 1 ratings on national radio featuring electronic music, with her compositions SuperMartXé, Don’t Stop till you get enough and Let you go.
Loved and admired by LGBT fans, Nalaya has sung at the best Gay festivals in the world, including ‘Europride’ in Rome 2011, where she was the opening turn for the Lady Gaga show. She has also released two singles for the gay circuit, titled Feel Alive and Leave Me Alone with Universal Music Brasil, reaching number 1 on electronic radio networks in Brasil & Mexico, becoming Mexico Gay Pride’s official anthem.
In Spain, she released Arena on the ‘Blanco y Negro’ recording label. She was also resident vocalist at the Privilege Ibiza Club for a period of over 8 years, performing every Friday before an audience of 10,000 at the SuperMartXé party. She was the first electronic music vocalist to perform at ‘Rock in Rio Brasil 2011’ and was awarded the Best International Vocalist EDM 2014 in Brasil and Best Vocalist 2015 in Spain by Vicious Magazine. The artist swings between commercial EDM and the Deep House, the subgenre in which she developed as a composer. In the year 2014 she recorded her first disc in a similar style for ‘Stealth Records’ with S.Man (Call To Me). Nalaya has performed at ‘Madrid Fashion Week’, her apparel designed by Francis Montesino.

During summer 2017 she was the resident vocalist at the most important festival in Spain of its kind, ‘Startlite Marbella’. Her most recent hits, Don’t Stop Moving and Be Mine, are top rated in the specialised musical charts. Her latest single released on 15 September together with artist Danny Romero, is set for new heights on the musical chart hit lists. She is currently working on a personal project, recording an album in which, at the end of the year, we can hope to uncover the most intimate side of the artist.
