Montréal-based electronic musician Ouri creates highly sensuous, abstract dance music, incorporating pop/R&B influences on releases like 2018's We Share Our Blood.
Born in Paris and raised in South America, Ouri was trained in piano, harp, and cello as a youth. Relocating to Montréal to attend university, she began making and performing electronic music using a combination of hardware and software, and started collaborating with several other artists from throughout the city's music scene, including CRi and Odile Myrtil. She made her debut with 2015's Maze, a six-song EP of lush, experimental dance tracks. This was followed by the 2017 full-length Superficial, as well as a collaborative EP with Mind Bath. Ouri made her debut on Ghostly International with 2018's We Share Our Blood EP, her most vocal-heavy work to date. ~ Paul Simpson
