About Wafia

With highly personal songs inspired by heartbreak and her Arab Muslim heritage, electro-pop singer-songwriter Wafia represents for seldom-heard voices on the international pop scene. • Born in the Netherlands to a Syrian mother and Iraqi father, Wafia Al-Rikabi moved to Australia with her family as a child. Though she was planning on a career in medicine, Wafia started writing songs during her second year of college to “escape the monotony.” • She emerged in 2014 with a lean electro-pop cover of Mario’s 2004 smash “Let Me Love You.” • Her 2015 EP XXIX included the song “Heartburn,” which superstar musician and producer Pharrell Williams liked enough to play on his Beats1 radio show. • In 2018, following two more EPs and a string of singles, Wafia was the featured vocalist on Los Angeles duo Louis The Child’s single “Better Not,” which reached the Top 20 on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart in the US and went gold. • Wafia moved to L.A. in March 2020 and released her fourth EP, Good Things, that August.
