If you’re bored with mainstream music sounding a bit samey these days and yearning for something more transcendental, or even a bit kooky, look no further than OlyasDream.

Based in Los Angeles, OlyasDream is an outside-the-box performance artist who previously appeared on American Idol 2021 playing the HandPan. Her artistic mission? To inspire others to be unafraid to express themselves and believe that what they can offer is unique to the world in the hope that this leads to a world with more love and compassion. This theme of spiritual development underpins Olya’s unique brand of music. Her signature sound is an intriguing juxtaposition of the HandPan drum and alternative rock, a little reminiscent of Kate Bush in moments.

Wildest Dream is an alt-rock track that will grab your attention and maybe even broaden your horizons, with its shamanic, dreamy feel, featuring hand pan, drums, guitar, and electronic software complimenting Olyas’ idiosyncratic vocals. Listen below:
