Shakira Alleyne is a thoughtful writer and musician from London. Her focus as an artist is to reconnect people with raw emotions and encourage expression in a time where she feels there is an ever-growing sense of detachment. She achieves this through her poetically driven lyrics, atmospheric sounds and sometimes sinister vocals. Guided by an experimental ethos, Shakira tends to take most of her inspiration from life experiences and observations using her love for writing to create honest and in-depth songs. She often plays with language as a way of communicating both the excitement and frustration of existing.
