MHYSA performs out in the world and has toured internationally as a musical act, after gaining fans due to her albums fantasii (2017) and most recently NEVAEH (2020). MHYSA’s live show incorporates video projections I create using video art techniques I’ve developed. MHYSA’s sound is experimental and electronic, while it has R&B and soul origins. MHYSA also composes, produces and co-produces electronic music using laptops and synthesizers.
MHYSA’s songs focus on the small radical actions that are Black women holding space to exist safely and love ourselves safely, to be queer, to stand up for ourselves, to scream and feel in general and explore our own interior worlds.

Lavendra Music Videos
Performance Gestures is a series of live performances created during my time taking a performance studio course with Sharon Hayes at the University of Pennsylvania. All of these videos carry themes of Black femme precarity, specifically, Black culture and the precarity of the Black body in general. These performances are the only solo performances I’ve ever composed specifically for gallery spaces.
